    In the first allegation, a patient said she was sexually assaulted by Dr. Norwood during a physical exam. The claim stemmed from an alleged incident in 2016.

    A year later, the executive committee of the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure took no action, but they did continue the investigation.

    On November 5, the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure received the license order. It was accepted and approved by the board on November 29. 

    His license was suspended for an indefinite period of time with no stay of the suspension.
    After one year from the execution of the order, Norwood can petition the board for reinstatement of his license, but that does not guarantee it will be reinstated. 

    Norwood would be subject to comprehensive multidisciplinary assessment or evaluation for the purpose of determining his fitness to practice medicine with reasonable skill and safety to patients.

    The disgraced doctor must reimburse the board for all costs related to this matter
