A University of Chicago neurologist has been charged with misdemeanor public indecency and disorderly conduct after police say he masturbated naked where two 13-year-old boys could see him at a Deerfield hotel earlier this month, according to an article in TribLocal. His medical license has also been temporarily suspended.
Jeffrey I. Frank, 53, is accused of masturbating at an open window, which faced an atrium, in a hotel in the 1400 block of Lake Cook Road, the article says. He has been arrested on similar charges in the area in the past.
He turned himself in voluntarily at the Deerfield Police Department and is due in court June 19, according to police.
Frank is the director of the neuromedical/neurosurgical intensive care unit. His bio on the U of C website calls Frank “an internationally recognized leader” in his field and “a pioneer in the clinical research area of life-threatening brain-swelling after stroke.”
