A juror has been dismissed from the Calgary trial of a once prominent forensic psychiatrist accused of sexual assaulting his patients.

A publication ban prevents any reporting on why the juror has been dismissed.

Dr. Aubrey Levin is accused of sexually assaulting 10 male patients. Most of the alleged victims had a criminal record and were on medication at the time they met with Levin as part of a court order.

His trial began in October with five women and seven men serving as jurors.
