Dr. Cappeletti's Chorus by Gerard D'Alessio
ABOUT DR. CAPPELETTI’S CHORUS
Anthony Cappeletti works hard and does everything right. He’s an alter boy, a star on his college baseball team; he graduates near the top of his college and medical school classes, and he overcomes major fi nancial obstacles to achieve his boyhood dream of becoming a successful physician in his hometown in central Pennsylvania. He marries his college sweetheart, has three wonderful children and earns the respect of everyone in his community. Then, without warning, Tony is accused of sexually assaulting eight female patients. His family is shocked and devastated by the consequences of these accusations. Tony claims he is the victim of a conspiracy to destroy his reputation. He loses his license, his hospital privileges, and his ability to practice medicine at all. His world falls apart, but so does that of his wife, his children, his father and his step-mother. Facing the most crucial time in his life, Tony struggles to convince his family – and a jury – of his innocence as he faces decades in prison. Is he guilty or the victim of a plot to destroy him?
