Famed Pediatrician Leaves Institute After Molestation Accusations

DURHAM, N.C.

A famed pediatrician has resigned from a North Carolina institute after he allegedly molested five young boys during physical examinations, according to The New York Times. Dr. Melvin D. Levine now faces five lawsuits on the accusations.

Levine founded the institute, All Kinds of Minds, in 1995. The institute has teacher-training contracts with two states and dozens of individual schools and is expected to continue spreading Levine’s views on children’s learning abilities.

The pediatrician has denied touching a patient sexually, but has voluntarily suspended his license to practice, according to the news report. Levine is under investigation by the North Carolina Medical Board; however, no criminal charges have been filed.
