Arkansas doctor pleads not guilty to sexual assault charges



Little Rock, Arkansas – Related to three sexual assault charges in Benton County, an Arkansas doctor accused of sexual assault in two counties pleaded not guilty Monday.

The alleged assaults involving Dr. Adam Maass of Cave Springs happened in March and April of 2021, and over the period of 2020 to 2022, according to a criminal information sheet.

According to an affidavit for probable cause, a woman told Cave Springs police in February that Maass had touched her breast without consent while performing a medical exam in March 2021.

Maass, an endocrinologist, faces another two sexual assault charges in Washington County in which he pleaded not guilty to last month.

The Arkansas State Medical Board suspended Maass’ license after seven individual complaints of sexual misconduct but later reinstated it after a formal review earlier in 2022.

In August, the state board plans to reevaluate his license.

Maass’ next court appearance in Benton County is scheduled for Sept. 6.
