Child molestation charge leads to suspended medical license for former South Bend doctor


By: Krystal Vivian

A former South Bend doctor had his medical license suspended after he was arrested and charged with child molestation last month.

 A petition for emergency suspension of Jon Shull’s license was filed after his arrest, the South Bend Tribune reported. It will be the topic of a hearing scheduled for May 26.

Shull was charged with child molestation in January after a victim said he touched her inappropriately and forced her to touch him in February 2014, when she was 5.

The victim was not a patient.

Shull was a family physician at Southeast Neighborhood Health Center, but Beacon Health System ended its affiliation with him in 2015.
