A former Edmonton Stollery Children’s Hospital physician has been charged with two counts of sexual assault on two boys under the age of 16, among other charges.

It’s alleged that the former physician, who was training to become a pediatric neurologist, knew the two boys but they were not patients of his. Because of this, EPS is unable to give details on the case because it isa private matter that doesn’t involve the accused’s workplace, and Alberta Health Services is also unable to reveal any details.

The incidents are alleged to have taken place over the last year, with the latest being at the end of last month.

Javier Castillo Cortes, 31, also known as Mauricio Castillo, was charged with 10 different offences, including two counts of sexual assault and interference, committing an indecent act, unlawful confinement, and two counts of exposure to persons under 16, an Edmonton police spokesperson said.

Cortes is no longer with the Stollery or any Alberta Health Services facility, and is slated to be in court September to enter his plea.
