BUTTE – A former Butte physician pleaded guilty this week to sexually assaulting his patients over the last several years.

District Court records show Dr. Patrick McGree entered a guilty plea in Helena Thursday to one felony count of sexual assault in connection with inappropriate behavior with six different patients over a five-year period at his office in Butte. 

McGree had been charged with other felony offenses, but those were dropped as part of this plea agreement.

McGree will be sentenced after a pre-sentence investigation.
