|Terry Rouse loses chiropractic license|
over allegations of sexual assault.
In the official Statement of Charges against Rouse, it is alleged that in 2009, after entering into a professional arrangement to share his clinic space with a then-current patient, who was a licensed massage therapist, Rouse "digitally penetrated" her while she was receiving chiropractic treatment from him and, days later, "rubbed" against her, ultimately ejaculating on her, while she was performing a massage on him.
In 2015, a similar arrangement was made with another of Rouse's clients--this one also a licensed massage therapist. This woman alleges that during 2 chiropractic sessions, Rouse "stimulated" her and during one of those incidents, also penetrated her with his fingers.
The most recent alleged incident occurred in May of 2016 when a car accident victim claims she was "touched" in her vaginal area during a treatment.
It is illegal in Washington for a licensed chiropractor to engage in sexual acts with patients.
The identities of the alleged victims were not made public.
Rouse can formally defend himself against the allegations and fight the suspension of his license. Local media reports that Rouse turned himself in to police and has since posted bond. He has no known criminal record.
