Joshua Robbins is accused of drugging a teenage daughter of a friend while alone with the girl in her parents' home.

A dentist accused of attempted indecency with a child made his first appearance in front of a Harris County Judge Monday.

The alleged crime happened two years ago, but it was reportedly a confession to a sex therapist that led to charges against the dentist.

Court documents state that Robbins drugged a teenage daughter of a friend while alone with the girl in her parents' home.

During a session with a sex therapist, the dentist allegedly admitted to using drugs on the girl. The therapist then reported that to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

Robbins faces 2 to 10 years in prison if convicted.

A New Caney dentist is accused of drugging and fondling a 16-year-old girl, and now the victim and her family are speaking out.



"Right now, the allegation in this specific case, we don't any evidence or anything else to support that he used it in any other instances," said Assistant Harris County DA Matthew Gilliam.

Robbins' license to practice is under indefinite suspension. His lawyer says he denies the charges and wants to speak further to that therapist to find out exactly what the dentist allegedly said during those sessions.
