The Class B felony aggravated sexual battery indictment alleges that on July 23 Calendine engaged in sexual contact with a 12-year-old male and that he acted intentionally and knowingly with regard to the victim’s age.
The Class C felony sexual battery by an authority figure indictment alleges that on July 23 Calendine engaged with sexual contact with a 14-year-old boy and acted intentionally and knowingly with regard to the victim’s age.
The indictment further alleges that at the time of the offense Calendine had custodial authority over the 14-year-old victim and used that authority to accomplish sexual contact.
Calendine told the Times-News via text message last week, “The accusations are completely false, and I will take every necessary step to prove that. I have been advised to limit any additional statements for now.”
Davies told the Times-News Thursday evening he didn’t have any additional comment other than to confirm that Dr. Calendine will plead not guilty, and ask for a trial to defend himself in court.
Calendine, a 1997 graduate of ETSU’s Quillen College of Medicine, has practiced medicine in Hawkins County for the past 16 years. He is well known for his community service and work with local schools.
