Bar association attorney Chris Cook told FOX 8, "Even a lay person could recognize that what appears to be going on is some hypnotic trance, things that you might associate with that, such as counting backwards, relaxation techniques, breathing techniques, focusing on colors, what are called code words I've come to learn." No criminal charges have been filed in the case, but we are told evidence being gathered by investigators may soon be presented to a Lorain County Grand Jury.
SHEFFIELD, Ohio- The Lorain County Bar Association says a woman came to the Sheffield Village Police Department in September and told investigators that her attorney, Michael Fine, had allegedly hypnotized her in order to perform sexual acts, during meetings at his office to discuss a custody dispute.
The woman, now known as Jane Doe #1, did not recall what happened in the meetings, but felt strongly there had been sexual conduct without her consent.
Perhaps the worst doctor I have ever tried to work with.
He is an arrogant elitist and very closed minded regarding possible alternative treatments.
Among the disturbing allegations now being investigated, is that Michael Fine used hypnosis on his clients inside conference rooms at the Lorain County Justice Center, while they thought they were preparing for their court cases.
