Midlothian doctor charged in federal internet sex sting

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A Chesterfield doctor has been arrested in a federal internet sex sting. The FBI nabbed 57-year-old Paul David Hite. He's accused of wanting to meet up with children for sex.

Dr. Hite is a licensed anesthesiologist in Virginia and had privileges at Johnston-Willis Hospital. The federal criminal complaint against him is so graphic. We can't even share most of the details. The allegations made his neighbor cringe.

The internet sex crime allegations against Midlothian Dr. Hite, not only shocked but sickened Doug Sinclair who lives on Old Gun Road not far from Hite's house.

"Here's a man who's a doctor. What was he thinking," said Sinclair.

So disgusted, Sinclair couldn't finish reading a sexually explicit search warrant affidavit.

"Oh man, talk about detail. That is very disturbing," said Sinclair.

The six page federal complaint is far worse. It outlines an alleged internet chat last month between Hite and an undercover Washington, D.C. officer who asked Hite if he'd ever had sex with a minor.

According to the complaint, Hite replied "Years ago, none in ages."

It said the two chatted for days about having sex with two children, including the officer's 3-year-old nephew.

Hite wrote "Would love to help you with him sometime."

They discussed using Benadryl to make the sexual playtime easier and to distort the boy's recollection.

Hite pressed for quote "Real time with him."

On Valentine's day, the two spoke by phone agreeing to meet. Hite was arrested days later in D.C.

"I don't have any children, but if I did I'd be very concerned about that for my children and I am for anyone else," said Sinclair.

Back on February 17th, the feds went in to Hite's home on Old Gun Road with a search warrant. According to court documents they left with a computer, camera and soiled children's clothing.

I wanted to see if anyone else lived at Hite's home. I knocked on the door with no luck.

Johnston Willis Hospital revoked Hite's privileges after hearing about the charge from his now former employer, Commonwealth Anesthesia Associates. Hite is charged by the feds with attempted enticement of a minor.

Right now, he's being held in the D.C. Metro jail awaiting his court date which has not yet been set.
