Twin Falls chiropractor accused of assaulting 9 patients

A Twin Falls chiropractor has had his license suspended in connection to allegations that he sexually assaulted nine patients.

The Times-News reports that 54-year-old Robert Johnson has been charged with nine misdemeanor counts of sexual exploitation by a medical care provider.

In a Sept. 22 order, the Idaho State Board of Chiropractors has suspended Johnson from practicing until completion of the criminal investigation.

Johnson faces up to nine years in county jail, a fine up to $9,000 and he would have to register as a sex offender if convicted.

According to court documents four women went to police in July and since then five more women have come forward with similar accusations. All nine women say Johnson spent inordinate amounts of time massaging their inner thighs and breasts.
