Dr. Julian Gordon, a one-time psychologist in the Oakland County (Michigan) court system, spent 13 years in prison for raping a boy he was supposed to be counseling, according to reports.
After he got out of prison, the state gave him back his license, though he had been fired from Oakland County’s probate court in the 1990s. Gordon, 56, told the state he was a “reformed man.” But now he faces new allegations, WXYZ reports.
Another man has made a claim that Gordon tried to sexually assault him after he got out of prison.
WXYZ reports that he was counseling Tony Esparza, 27, at Nardin Park Recovery Center. Esparza told WXYZ that he did not know of Gordon’s history.
Esparza said Gordon told him he could help him find a job if he moved in to his Waterford condo with him.
And one night, Esparza told WXYZ that Gordon got into bed with him and started touching him inappropriately, trying to have sex with him. WXYZ reports that Esparza said he fought him off with a knife.
Esparza has filed a compliant with the state for approving Gordon’s license reinstatement.
Gordon worked for Oakland County from September of 1989 to June 4, 1997, when as a senior psychologist he was terminated after criminal charges were filed against him, said Kevin Oeffner, circuit court administrator.
He was sentenced to prison by Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Rae Lee Chabot.
