TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio plastic surgeon accused of drugging and sexually abusing more than 20 women and recording the assaults has pleaded guilty to federal charges in one of those cases.

Manish Gupta pleaded guilty Monday to single counts of sex trafficking by force, fraud or coercion and illegally distributing a controlled substance.

The 50-year-old Sylvania resident faces at least 15 years in prison when he’s sentenced Aug. 25.

The charges are related to the assault on a woman in September 2016.

Prosecutors said Gupta shipped medical supplies to a hotel in California and then drugged, raped and recorded a sexual encounter with a woman.

Gupta ran clinics in Ohio and Michigan.
