A doctor already charged with assaulting patients at his Clinton office appeared in court Monday after he was arrested again over the weekend.
Dr. Tory Westbrook is now facing more than two dozen new charges against him.
Three women have already come forward against him, and the new charges are coming from many more who are now coming forward.
Westbrook was first arrested in June after his former patients went to police and accused him of touching them inappropriately. Investigators said those alleged assaults occurred inside exam rooms at the Community Health Center in Clinton.
Details of the new charges weren't released, but all the arrest warrants in the case are due to be unsealed Aug. 14
The married father of four pleaded not guilty to those charges and posted bond, but over the weekend, he was arrested again.
Westbrook's lawyer, Norman Pattis, said he is innocent and that "copycats" may now be targeting Westbrook for money.
"We think he's a good doctor," he said. "We don't think there's credible evidence that he's harmed anyone."
Westbrook is facing a total of 26 charges with 24 as fourth-degree sexual assault, one is second-degree sexual assault and the other is illegally prescribing narcotics.
Those arrests came from 11 warrants.
Former patients said the whole situation is startling.
"It makes me wonder," said Joanne Schroff, of Clinton. "It makes me think back, but again, nothing really stood out to me or really made me think he was inappropriate."
Westbrook is no longer practicing at the Community Health Center in Clinton, and his medical license has temporarily been suspended.
He was released on $1.1 million bond, and is expected to appear in court again on Aug. 28.
