According to the criminal complaint, the nurse agreed to have dinner with Dr. Entezam Asim Sahovic at a Shadyside restaurant.

The woman, whose name was not released, says that although the doctor professed his love to her in August of last year, she did not have an intimate relationship with him. She maintains Sahovic agreed to remain friends, and agreed the two would not have a sexual or intimate relationship.
