Chiropractor Kirk Jones Charged with Sexual Battery
Chiropractor Kirk Jones has been accused of sexually assaulting a female patient at his office in Nashville, known as the Bellevue Chiropractic Center.
Jones was arrested on Tuesday, November 12 on a grand jury indictment. He faces two counts of sexual battery without consent.
Police began investigating Jones in September when a 24-year-old female patient contacted the authorities after leaving an appointment at the Bellevue Chiropractic Center.
This patient told police that she visited the office for chiropractic care from Jones. She says that Jones touched her in a way that was “sexual in nature” and that this contact occurred without her consent.
Jones was arrested following the investigation and his bond was set at $100,000.

Legal Options For Victims of Sexual Assault by Chiropractors
After serving the public as a sex crimes prosecutor for several years, attorney Brian Kent of AbuseGuardian.com now represents victims of sexual crimes in civil lawsuits. Brian has offered to share a bit of his knowledge on the legal rights of those who have been sexually assaulted by chiropractors and other medical professionals:
Chiropractors and other medical professionals are trusted by their patients. We expect that these professionals will provide us with the medical care we need and treat us with respect – but sadly, not all medical professionals are trustworthy people. There have been widespread reports of medical professionals sexually assaulting their patients throughout the country.
Chiropractors who sexually assault their patients must be held criminally responsible for their actions. However, victims of these crimes may also have grounds for legal action in the form of a civil lawsuit. These lawsuits can provide financial support for personal and financial difficulties suffered by a patient as a result of the abuse. Additionally, lawsuits can demand accountability from negligent third parties involved in the abuse – such as a medical facility that failed to respond to previous complaints about the chiropractor.
