A trial is scheduled in La Crosse this summer for an area doctor charged with sexually assaulting children under the age of 13.
Dr. Joseph Poterucha will be tried in July on three sexual assault charges. The charges against the Mayo system physician were filed late in 2021, after multiple accusers came forward.
Poterucha was based at Mayo in La Crosse at the time. He now lives in Rochester.
The trial is scheduled to start on Thursday, July 13th, and could carry over into the following week.
