THERAPIST CHARGED WITH MISCONDUCT SURRENDERS LICENSE
By KEVIN DEUTSCH
A 36-year-old therapist arrested last year for allegedly groping at least five female patients during two days of therapy sessions at a residential treatment facility relinquished his professional license Friday, according to the Florida Department of Health.
Todd Rabone of Parkland was a therapist at the Drug Abuse Foundation of Palm Beach County at 400 S. Swinton Ave. Detectives charged him with sexual misconduct by a psychotherapist in November after several women accused him of making sexual comments, exposing himself and inappropriately touching them.
Rabone's DNA was identified on a paper towel that one of the patients saw him throw into a garbage can Aug. 22, detectives said. Rabone has pleaded not guilty.
Rabone has been suspended from practicing in Florida since March.
