Pediatrician Gets 6 Years for Molesting Patients

February 11, 1998

Peter Bruce Fischer, a pediatrician who practices in Bellflower and once coached tennis star Pete Sampras, was sentenced Tuesday to six years in state prison for sexually molesting young male patients.

Fischer, 56, of Rolling Hills, pleaded guilty in Norwalk Superior Court Dec. 16 to two counts of unlawful penetration of a minor.

When the charges were made public last summer, Sampras said that when Fischer coached him, there was no inappropriate behavior on Fischer's part.
