The married doctor told the court he had fetish somnophilia and was sexually aroused by someone who is unconscious.

Chung was convicted of kidnapping, battery with intent to commit sexual assault, and four counts of sexual assault.

"We're very happy the jury saw things the way we did," prosecutor Alex Chen said. "Justice was served in this case."

Chung would videotape the sexual acts and prosecutors played one of the tapes for the court, showing the doctor repositioning the unconscious woman.

He told the court the woman was a good actor and denied she was asleep.

One of the victims read a statement to the court on Thursday, calling Chung a "monster."

"I never could have imagined he was a monster," she said. 'I could not believe someone would do something so harmful."

Prosecutors said the former doctor used Ketamine to drug the female patients.

Chung, who has been in custody since 2015, was sentenced to 50 years.
