Federal agents search former offices of Hudson doctor

By Tim Troglen | Hudson hub Published:

State and federal officials did not release many details on the search warrant executed this week at the Stow offices of Summit Pain Management.

The federal search warrant was in connection with alleged charges against a former doctor, James P. Bressi, of Victoria Parkway in Hudson according a spokesperson for the State Medical Board of Ohio.

Bressi has been indicted on 27 charges of sexual misconduct and assault, including rape.

"We are conducting a search warrant with a few assisting agencies," FBI Special Agent Vicki D. Anderson said Wednesday.

According to Anderson, details of the sealed search warrant or what was removed from the Allen Road offices could not be released.

A spokesperson from the State Medical Board of Ohio confirmed officers from the governing medical authority, which suspended Bressi's license to practice medicine in 2013, assisted with the search warrant.

Bressi, 59, was indicted by a Summit County grand jury on 27 counts of alleged sexual misconduct. He was arrested Aug. 30, 2013, at his home. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Bressi was indicted after an 18-month investigation by Stow police. The indictments allege Bressi assaulted the patients under his care from September 2011 to March 2013, while he was employed at Summit Pain Specialists in Stow.

More than 100 former patients have claimed to have been victims of Bressi.

Bressi has been free on 10 percent of $1 million bon.

A trial is scheduled for June 19. The State Medical Board of Ohio has scheduled a hearing on Bressi's suspended license for September.

Supporters of Bressi have created a "We Support Dr James Bressi" Facebook page. The page has 19 likes since its creation in August.
