A former doctor in South Bend has pleaded guilty to child molesting.

Jon Shull made the guilty plea to his level C felony charge Monday morning. He’s facing up to eight years in prison and a $10,000 fine when he’s sentenced on Nov. 30.

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.

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

His medical license was suspended not long after his arrest.
