Dr. William Dando pleaded not guilty and is requesting a jury trial on charges he sexually assaulted a female patient at an urgent care center near Cumberland, according to court records updated Monday. Dando appeared Tuesday in Allegany County Circuit Court and his trial is scheduled for Sept. 13. Neither he nor his attorney, R. Steven Friend of Cumberland, could be reached for comment. Dando was indicted last month on sex offense charges after a 41-year-old woman told police he inappropriately touched her during an unchaperoned pelvic examination at MedExpress Urgent Care Center in LaVale in April.

Former Catonsville doctor William Dando will not face trial for sexual assault allegations after agreeing never to practice medicine in Maryland again. Allegany County prosecutors dropped charges against him Tuesday, citing two factors — the "he said, she said" nature of the case and his decision to surrender his medical license. Dando had been scheduled to stand trial Wednesday in an incident in which a 41-year-old patient said he touched her genitals while treating her for an ear infection at an urgent-care center near Cumberland.

The Maryland Board of Physicians upheld on Thursday its decision to suspend Dr. William Dando's medical license based on his indictment in Allegany County for an alleged sexual assault. Dando appeared before the board Wednesday and was given the chance to argue why the suspension, issued June 5, should be lifted. A presentation from Dando and his lawyer did not dissuade the board that "there exists a substantial risk of serious harm to the public health, safety or welfare in Dr. Dando's continued practice," acting board Executive Director Christine Farrelly wrote in a letter posted to the board website Thursday.

Revelations that a former Catonsville doctor obtained his Maryland medical license despite having a rape conviction on his record is sparking a push for criminal background checks of physicians - a proposal that has failed and been ignored in recent years. As recently as 2013, state lawmakers considered a bill that encouraged checks for a wide range of health care providers, including doctors. It breezed through hearings and appeared headed for passage, but was pulled after a dispute over a single word, and was not reintroduced in this year's General Assembly session.

State health officials launched an investigation Thursday into how Dr. William Dando was allowed to practice medicine in Maryland, given his 1987 rape conviction in Florida, and they suspended his medical license because of a sexual assault indictment filed last month in Allegany County. The officials disclosed that when Dando applied for a Maryland medical license in 1996, he told the Board of Physicians he had "assaulted someone" while under the influence of alcohol in the past, but did not specify that the 1986 incident involved rape at gunpoint.

The practitioner of a now-closed Catonsville laser surgery center who was convicted of raping a woman at gunpoint in 1987 was indicted by an Allegany County grand jury last week for sexually assaulting a patient behind locked doors. Dr. William Thomas Dando, 59, faces two charges related to the alleged incident April 6 at MedExpress Urgent Care Center in LaVale, just west of Cumberland. The victim, a 41-year-old woman, told the Allegany County sheriff's office that after a nurse left the exam room, the doctor locked a door and assaulted her. Dando was released and is scheduled to appear in court next month, under an indictment filed May 23. He could not be reached for comment.

London -- After a run of independent-label releases in the late '80s, and a barely noticed big-label debut in 1990, the Boston-based Lemonheads finally bounced beyond their college cult with a grunge-pop remake of "Mrs. Robinson" and the album "It's a Shame about Ray."As lead Lemonhead Evan Dando became alternative music's cover boy of the year, the threesome won over radio, MTV and concert crowds from L.A. to London to Sydney. So with its current album, "Come on Feel the Lemonheads," the band certainly has reached a milestone.

If patients in Maryland want to learn about complaints or concerns about their doctors, there is little that can be made public under state law. But that's not the case in all states. Complaints made to medical licensing boards are made public in nine states, according to the Federation of State Medical Boards. Here and in most of the rest of the country, complaints are kept confidential. The Maryland Board of Physicians makes allegations public only when it has taken action to discipline a doctor.

A respected Harford County educator who was shot and killed Monday evening knew his assailant, authorities said yesterday. David Allen Johnston, 22, is suspected in the killing of Earl Jacob Lightcap, 75, the longtime principal of Edgewood High School and former assistant superintendent of Harford County schools, said Harford sheriff's spokesman Edward Hopkins. Johnston had worked for Lightcap, doing chores around his house for a few years, authorities said. Lightcap was found dead at his Long Bar Harbor house Tuesday afternoon by neighbors John Cooney and Frank Lucas, after he failed to show up to a meeting with Cooney, Hopkins said.

Boston's most famous '90s alt-rock band, The Lemonheads, will perform its 1992 breakthrough album, "It's a Shame About Ray" in its entirety at the Ottobar on Saturday. There's been a revolving door of members over the years, but frontman Evan Dando remains at the helms. The Lemonheads are an interesting case of stars aligning, for better or worse: "Ray" was released the same year as Nirvana's"Nevermind," right as radio and major labels were embracing any Serious songwriters with long hair and a "Who cares?"
