Long time Harris County crime victims’ advocate Kim Ogg is calling for a criminal investigation into the dentist’s actions that left 4-year-old Nevaeh Hall severely brain damaged following a dental procedure. The lawyer for the child’s family claims her dentist, Dr. Bethaniel Jefferson, physically restrained her, gave her excessive doses of medication, and waited four hours before calling 911.
Ogg says, “If these allegations are true, a Harris County Grand Jury criminal investigation should begin immediately. In the law there are differences between a medical mistake and potentially criminal conduct,” says Ogg, “The District Attorney has the responsibility to find out exactly what happened to this child.”
Ogg is challenging District Attorney Devon Anderson in November for the job of Harris County District Attorney.
Ogg is available for comment.
