DYERSBURG, TN -

(WMC-TV) - A Memphis lawyer has been charged with the rape of his client.

Milton Magee is a partner with Skouteris and Magee, medical malpractice attorneys in Downtown Memphis.  The firm's website said Magee has years of experience in medical malpractice case.

In the police affidavit obtained at the Dyersburg Courthouse, the victim claims Magee met with her in January to discuss representing her in a medical malpractice lawsuit.

The victim said Magee asked her to disrobe so he could examine her surgical scars.  She said he asked her to remove her pants and underwear.  Magee knelt down and touched her private area then fondled her breasts.  The victim said Magee became aroused.

Magee said he could not comment on the case.  His attorney, Leslie Ballin, said the same thing and that he is still investigating.

Magee was arrested Friday.  He is charged with rape due to unlawfully penetrating the victim under fraudulent circumstances.

Magee is out on a $7,500 bond.  He is scheduled to appear in court in Dyersburg April 14.
