A Las Vegas doctor is facing charges of sexual assault and child pornography after his wife found videos on his phone and other electronic devices of the doctor engaging in sex acts, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Dr. Binh Minh Chung, a family practitioner, is behind bars and facing charges of sexual assault and child pornography after his wife gave police numerous videos of him allegedly having sex in medical scrubs with unconscious women – including an underage girl. His medical license has since been suspended.

At least 11 alleged victims are listed in a 28-count criminal complaint, CNN reported on Thursday.

A teenager who allegedly scheduled an appointment for Dr. Chung to treat her acne, told police the doctor picked her up at home for her third appointment around 10 p.m., in July of last year, and gave her a shot at his office that knocked her out. When she woke up, she was without pants and her feet were in stirrups, according to a police report, cited on CNN.

She told cops that Chung said he'd "revived" her after a "bad reaction to the acne treatment."

Police have recovered a hard drive from Chung's office. It contains multiple child pornography videos.

In court documents unsealed by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, it was revealed Chung was accused of fondling a 15-year-old girl who was seeking treatment for pink eye in 2006. That case was dismissed after Chung completed 100-hours of community service, attended impulse control classes and agreed to stay out of trouble.

A preliminary hearing for Chung regarding his new alleged victims is set for October.

On Wednesday, a judge set bail at $1 million. Chris Oram, Chung's attorney, had asked the judge to set bail at $100,000 and place him on house arrest, according to CNN. Oram declined comment to CNN.
