A veteran doctor and motoring writer was convicted of two counts of molesting a female patient after a seven-day trial.

Winston Lee Siew Boon, 70, was found guilty on Friday of touching the breast of a then 34-year-old sales representative at his Thong Hoe Clinic at Bukit Batok Street 11 on Oct 30, 2011 and June 8 in the same year.

The father of two is a long-time contributor of motoring articles to The Straits Times' Life section and Torque magazine.

The patient had testified that she consulted Lee in June that year for nausea, flatulence and chest pain.
