A former doctor has been found guilty of a number of sexual offences at the DGH and health centres in East Sussex.
Sivaguru Narendran, known as Dr John Narendran, 78, of Sackville Road, Hailsham was charged with 17 counts of indecent assault while working at The Horder Centre, Crowborough and Eastbourne District General Hospital more than 20 years ago, said police.
A court heard Narendran went on to work at another hospital where in 1996 he was convicted and jailed for 21 months for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old boy.
Narendran appeared at Lewes Crown Court, which sat at Brighton, for an eight-day trial. Police said during the trial it was established the earliest offence was 1987 and the counts were amended to be 13 counts of indecent assault and one count of buggery.
He was found guilty of 13 counts of indecent assault and not guilty of the count of buggery.
All the victims were young boys who came into contact with Narendran whist he was working as a doctor at the two hospitals between these dates, said police.
