McKINNEY (CBSDFW.COM) – The Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners has issued a Temporary Emergency License Suspension against a North Texas chiropractor accused of sexually abusing at least two teenage girls.
Dr. David Russell is charged with sexually assaulting the girls at his chiropractic clinic in McKinney. According to police, he met both of them while volunteering at the Taylor Dance Studio, which is owned by his girlfriend.
Board officials said the suspension is based on ‘Russell’s two arrests’. Russell was first arrested on October 28 and again on November 4. He was released on $100,000 bond each time.
In a press release statement sent Thursday afternoon, Yvette Yarbrough, the Executive Director at the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners, said, “The Enforcement Committee felt this action necessary to insure the protection of the public.”
A hearing on the suspension is scheduled for November 30, in Austin.
