LEBANON, Ind. (AP) — A central Indiana pediatrician charged with sexually abusing three boys has voluntarily surrendered his medical license for 90 days.

Attorney General Curtis Hill announced Thursday that his office has reached an agreement for the surrender with attorneys for 41-year-old Dr. Jonathon Cavins of Jamestown.

Cavins is charged with one count of child molestation involving a 12-year-old boy and two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor and one count of vicarious sexual gratification involving boys 15 and 14 years old. The 12-year-old came forward on Feb. 7, accusing Cavins of fondling him during a routine physical three days earlier at Witham Pediatrics in Lebanon. After the molestation count was filed, Lebanon police detectives interviewed the two older boys.

Cavins currently has a jury trial set for July 8.
