Twin Falls chiropractor accused of assault pleads guilty

TWIN FALLS - A Twin Falls chiropractor accused of assaulting patients has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges.

The Times-News reports that 54-year-old Robert Johnson has pleaded guilty to five misdemeanor counts of sexual exploitation by a medical care provider.

Johnson faces up to five years in county jail, a fine up to $5,000 and likely must register as a sex offender.

Johnson owned and operated Family Chiropractic Clinic of Idaho and BrainCore Therapy of Southern Idaho. He was charged in July with nine counts of sexual exploitation by a medical care provider after women came forward saying he touched them inappropriately.

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