Trial set for doctor over reporting of abortion

June 17, 2014 GMT

CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) — A doctor charged with not properly reporting an abortion on a teenager two years ago in Indiana is scheduled to stand trial next year.

A Lake County judge on Monday set a trial date of Jan. 26, 2015, for 73-year-old Dr. Ulrich Klopfer of Crete, Illinois. Klopfer performs abortions in Gary, Fort Wayne and South Bend.

He was charged in January with a misdemeanor count of failing to timely file a public report. Prosecutors say he didn’t report to Indiana officials within three days that he performed an abortion on a 13-year-old girl in Gary.


The Times of Munster reports ( ) Klopfer didn’t attend Monday’s hearing. He has previously said he finds it “amazing” that a paperwork error could jeopardize his medical license.
