Dr. James Heaps, a physician formerly employed by UCLA, has been charged with sexual battery in connection with his medical practice and has surrendered to law enforcement. Dr. Heaps was an obstetrician-gynecologist who worked on a part-time basis at the UCLA student health center from approximately 1983 to 2010, held medical staff privileges at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center from 1988 to 2018, and practiced at 100 Medical Center Drive in Westwood from the 1990's until mid-2018.


Heaps, 62, was charged May 22, 2019 with two counts of sexual battery of fraud and one count of sexual exploitation of a patient, said Ricardo Santiago of the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. These charges relate to care he provided to two patients in 2017 and 2018 at UCLA Health.
