LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- A former Logan dentist has apologized to his victims and told a 1st District judge that he takes responsibility for his crimes.

Judge Clint S. Judkins ordered that Matthew Lyman be taken into custody Monday and sent him to the Utah State Prison for a 90-day evaluation by the Department of Corrections. He will be sentenced March 17.

In April, Lyman denied sexually abusing two patients, who testified that the dentist fondled them while they were anaesthetized. Later, in October, he pleaded guilty to one count of forcible sexual abuse, a third-degree felony, and sexual battery, a class A misdemeanor.
