McKinney Doctor Arrested Twice For Child Sex Assault

By Jack Fink & Ryan Crowe, CBSDFW.com

McKINNEY (CBSDFW.COM) – A McKinney chiropractor is facing charges in two cases of Sexual Assault of a Child after being arrested twice in less than a week.

David Allen Russell was arrested on October 28 following an ongoing investigation into a dance student who claimed they were assaulted by Russell.

After a second student came forward, Russell was re-arrested on November 4.

Both times Russell was released after posting a $100,000 bond.

Russell met the students through the Taylor Dance Studio, where he oversaw stretching and conditioning classes.  The studio says parents were notified immediately upon learning of the October 28 arrest.

Police won’t specify the age or sex of the victims.

Taylor Dance Studio says neither of the incidents occurred at their facility.

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County is helping police with their investigation.

    What is it lately? Did someone lift some huge rock all the child molesters crawl out from underneath it.

    1. TNT says:

      It’s the laws that are in place. If you get caught with child porn by the Feds, as in one of the news stories yesterday, you get a mandatory, non-negotiable, must-serve MINIMUM 5-year sentence in Club Fed upon conviction. However, if you actually do worse than that and personally carry out a sexual assault of a child, you may actually get 10 years probation for a first offense. Check out the sex offenders in your area and see how many got probation for their crimes. It’s sickening.

  2. NiteNurse says:

    I think some parents are really stupid when it comes to trusting their children with strangers. First you should never allow a medical person male or female to examine or treat your underage kid without you or another medical person in the room. If you’re a male and you’re treating a child for a physical problem you’re just asking for a child molestation charge if you don’t have another person in the room with you.

      But yet parents trust their kids with priests and ministers, since they are men of the “cloth”.

      1. NiteNurse says:

        I grew up in the 60s and 70s. My mom never allowed me to be alone with any adult male without either other adults being around or other children. I was told to never go alone with any adult male. Now tell me it’s a different world now because back then my mom was careful with her kids.

  3. Gumby Rules says:

    Also being a chiropractor I NEVER treat or touch a minor without having someone experienced with chiropractic treatment/exams in the room -parent or staff.

    I NEVER have a minor disrobe, not for any reason.

    And, if a minor’s complaint is near a private part I ALWAYS HAVE them place my fingers on where they hurts, I never touch them where they point. AND their hand is kept between my hand and their body, only my fingertips that I need to use to palpate touch their site of complaint.

  4. Smitty says:

    When you folks “ASSUME” something, you make ass of yourself. What makes you think the media in this case has it right, they report what the police tell them, the police doesn’t/didn’t tell them everything, they cant. They have an investigation to complete. Further, you hear only one side of the story. Let a jury decide who is telling the truth and who isn’t.

    To Gumby: you, as a professional, how can YOU, ASSUME, you know how another doctor practices. What makes you think for a moment there wasnt anyone else in the room when these “alleged” victims were treated?

    NIght Nurse: Get a day job, your imagination runs amok!

    1. NiteNurse says:

      Cyber Bully.

    2. Atheist Lawyer says:

      Oh, I don’t know, Smitty… maybe we’re assuming because he was arrested TWICE within a week on two separate charges of sexual assault of a child? Maybe that’s why we’re “assuming”. Even the open-minded lib lawyer in me has a real problem believing he’s being framed. Oh, and Smitty, if you think the assault happened with other people in the room, then YOUR imagination has run amok.

        Spoken by an attorney that has never dealt with law enforcement or handled a criminal matter.

    3. eieio says:

      1) I do Not have to ASSUME
      2) He doe not use a Chaperone while treating patients.
      3) Anyone under age 18 is referred to as a “CHILD” when it comes to Criminal allegations.

    4. AL says:

      Touching someone’s genitals is not okay…especially if a man touches childrens’ genitals. There’s no assuming. It happened.

  5. Doctor...doctor... doctor... AAAAAND doctor! says:

    I’m sorry, but did the headline refer to the chiropractor as a DOCTOR? LOL. Did he intern at Johns Hopkins? How many years did he go to school again? I’m not knocking what they do, but to call them doctors is a disservice to physicians.

    1. Norma Christy says:

      Are all doctors physicians? What about dentists, podiatrists,optometrists? How about college professors who are called doctor? And, according to your logic, the only people who can be called doctor are those who interned at Johns Hopkins. Thanks for the inflammatory post. I was surprised I had to scroll to the bottom of the page before I saw the first one.

  6. AL says:

    How many years were Suzan Taylor and David Russel together, in a relationship, again?

    1. TDC parent says:

      Somewhere between 6-8 yrs and he is funding her spanking new building in McKinney and she is still driving around in the car he bought her for her birthday.

  7. TDC parent says:

    The question that has yet to be asked is did Suzan Taylor know her boyfriend of at least 6 years was molesting her students or was this a case of see no evil,hear no evil,speak no evil because he was an investor in her new studio.if the public were to see some of the e- mails she has sent to her competiion families I think they would view this in a different light.

    1. MKmother says:

      This new information about the dance studio owner gives a new light to the case. Are the police and the media aware of the romantic relationship between Russell and Taylor? The public needs to know these details to be more aware of the pattern that creeps like that guy use to get access to their victims. In reality, the owner of the dance studio served Russell those girls on a silver platter. She should have the guts and dignity to refuse and return all and any financial support from that guy.

      1. Gern Blanston says:

        The question to be asked is why was Carla fired and why was the alleged victim living with Carla and not with her own mother. Sounds like Carla has an axe to grind and there is more to this so called victim than meets the eye. I hope we see a civil suit for slander in the future for Carla and pals.

  8. AMA says:

    And now there are 4, I’m sorry but Susan Taylor is doing what she always does and playing victim. Everyone at Taylor dance knew he was slimy and now she is covering her a.. By distancing herself from her man friend it is a shame she is chalking this up to a personal vendetta, saying there is no truth to this. Shame on you Suzan,you know better. If he is so bad then give back the car and refuse to accept his funding for your new studio,

  9. concernedparent says:

    TDC parent, maybe you should forward the emails to the police… or to the news media.
    It is the pattern of a child predator that they will date a woman who will give them easy access to children. Unfortunately his girlfriend gave him easy access to a lot of girls.
    David is my neighbor & from the day he moved in, I got a creepy feeling about him. I am glad I trusted my instincts & kept my kids away from him!!

      1. Gern Blanston says:

        McKinney mom, he has been in practice for over 15 years and is NEVER behind a closed door with a patient. The fact the TDC is not backing up Dr. Russell is abhorrent. Sounds like the problems started at TDC with Carla being terminated. Hmm, maybe a scorned employee that does not have the funds to open her own place. Gee, that never happens.

        And to concerned parent; glad your instincts are always correct, mine tell me you are a narrow minded low brow. Guess we both could be correct.
