CNN – A former Columbia University gynecologist accused by the wife of former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang of sexual assault has been indicted for allegedly sexually abusing female patients — including a minor — over nearly two decades.

The women who came forward to accuse the doctor included Evelyn Yang, wife of the former Democratic presidential candidate.
