McKinney Chiropractor Again Arrested For Sexual Assault

By Matt Goodman, CBSDFW.COM

MCKINNEY (CBSDFW.COM) – Dr. David Russell, the McKinney chiropractor who is accused of sexually assaulting at least two teenaged girls, was charged Wednesday with sexually assaulting two adults in a separate incident.

In a release, McKinney police said the arrest comes “as a result of the ongoing criminal investigation” against the doctor.

Russell was arrested at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday and is being held on $50,000 bond – each charge carries a $25,000 bond. Both are second degree felonies. The first offense was reported on Nov. 8 and the other was reported on Nov. 10, just two days later.

Originally, one charge carried a $200,o00 bond. But, for an unknown reason, that amount was dropped to $25,000 by an outside judge after Russell was arraigned.

On Nov. 17, the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners temporarily suspended Russell’s license in the wake of the previous charges.

Russell was first arrested on Oct. 28 and again on Nov. 4. He is accused of sexually abusing two teenaged girls who he met while volunteering at the Taylor Dance Studio, which is owned by his girlfriend.

Police accuse him of assaulting a 16-year-old girl – who authorities say is 18-years-old now – and a 13-year-old girl at his clinic. Court documents show Russell helped with stretching and conditioning at the dance studio.

Police say the sexual assaults took place while he treated the two girls privately for groin injuries.

McKinney Police offered no further information on the new charges, citing the ongoing investigation.

    that KA-CHING button keeps going off.

    So now police say charges go back as far as 1995. Every victim that was ignored should be financially compensated for the state’s neglect and making them victims a second time. This case is a prime example of how many times women report crimes that are NEVER investigated or prosecuted.

    Not only did the police not take this seriously but neither did his girlfriend,from my understanding ,and I have this info from a VERY reliable source,Suzan was aware of the accusations in the spring and continued to send parents and students to him for adjustments!!! Even if my info is wrong parents are now aware that there are eighteen complaints and four arrests and still continue to bring their children to Taylor dance for lessons. Suzan may be saying he will no longer be at the studio,and not be involved with decision making anymore but she is still dating him!!!!!! His name may be taken off the corporation but is his money being pulled from her studio or will he remain a silent financial contributer which will give him a say and a voice in the studio. I find myself asking if people have lost their moral compass,she is still supporting him and dating him. There are eighteen complaints,that is impossible to ignore or at the very least not question. She put out a statement on her web site in early November that said these allegations were 100 percent not true,she was at his board hearing in Austin back in November, her lawyer said she is standing by her man,she is moving into a building that he built for her.the move starts tomorrow and the new studio will open on January 2,2012.I am truly appalled at this whole situation. Suzan continues to play victim only to the parents face yet support him by her actions. David Russell is not the only one culpable in this situation.the police dropped the ball and the parents aren’t using any common sense. As I said earlier. “where is your moral compass people”

      I totally agree with you Disgusted! How can any parent send their child to a dance studio when the owner refuses to put the best interest of her dancers before her lust for money! What does this say to the girls at the studio? How must the teammates of the 13 year old girl feel? If something did happen to one of them they probably won’t come forward because they know that Suzan would call them liers & kick them out of the studio. Shouldn’t Suzan be a role model & protector of these girls? Shame on Suzan Taylor for putting money before the well being of her dancers! And, shame on these parents for continuing to bring their children to her studio!! The whole DFW dance community is talking about this & the parents better realize that when their child walks around in a Taylor dance uniform at conventions & competitions that everyone is disgusted that their parents continue to take their child to a studio that was built with money from a sexual predator!!

    Susans actions speak volumes. if she REALLY cared for the children she would come out publicly and denounce David and his actions. After all there are 18 accusations. Can she keep saying that this is 100 percent not true and this is a vendetta by her former teachers and expect people to be that naive. Guess so because there are many parents that still support her and continue to bring their children to her studio. The Taylor dance Facebook page is filled with all the parent support and praise. As a parent,I do not want my girls associated with a dance school owner that has such low moral character as to be taking financing from a man accused of such reprehensible behavior a man that she is supporting. What is that saying to these young female students? Your self respect and morals are for sale to the highest bidder? Taylor Dance and it’s students are the sordid gossip of DFW. If you keep your children there don’t complain that you get no respect,you have also made a decision to stand by Suzan.
