State Attorney Not Prosecuting Felony Battery Charge on Charles Stamitoles


Pensacola, FL (Newsradio 92.3) — The State Attorney’s Office says they won’t be prosecuting former dentist Charles Stamitoles on his final pending felony battery charge. Court documents show that the victim doesn’t want to testify and she says she is satisfied with the sentences that Stamitoles received on the other charges against him.

The felony charge was originally filed after Stamitoles was accused of grabbing a 74-year-old woman by the face and kissing her during a dental appointment. Stamitoles was charged with seven prior misdemeanor battery counts for inappropriately touching other dental patients. He was convicted last October on one count, then pled no contest on six other charges in January.

Stamitoles was sentenced to around 13 months total in the Escambia County jail.

Stamitoles’ dental license was revoked after his conviction. He also still faces a felony charge for perjury after allegedly lying to a judge during a bond hearing. That charge came after he allegedly traveled to Mobile while he was out of jail on bond.
