Florida restricts license of ex-Hernando jail psychiatrist accused of molesting female inmates

By John Woodrow Cox

BROOKSVILLE — The Florida surgeon general has restricted the license of a former Hernando County jail psychiatrist after authorities say he asked female inmates to expose themselves, give him a lap dance or a kiss and implied he would trade medication for sex.

In one instance, authorities said, Dr. James A. Yelton Rossello, 53, pinned a woman to the wall and molested her.

The accusations against Yelton stem from his treatment of four female inmates from November 2009 to August 2010. During that time, the state records show, he was employed by the Corrections Corporation of America, which for 22 years was contracted to run the county jail.
