Prosecutors on Tuesday filed sex crime charges against a Twin Cities plastic surgeon who lost his license to practice after state regulators ruled that he molested several female clients during appointments as far back as 2008. Christopher Kovanda, 56, of Minneapolis, was charged in Hennepin County District Court with two gross misdemeanor counts of fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct stemming from assaults in 2019 and 2021. The criminal complaint lists five other clients of Kovanda's who alleged that he molested them during office visits, either in Edina or Minneapolis.
