A Twin Falls chiropractor has had his license suspended in connection with allegations he sexually assaulted nine female patients.

The Times-News reports 54-year-old Robert Johnson has been charged with nine misdemeanor counts of sexual exploitation by a medical care provider.

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

Johnson faces up to nine years in jail, a fine up to $9,000 and, if convicted, he would have to register as a sex offender.

According to court documents, four women went to police in July and since then, five more women have come forward with similar accusations. All nine women say Johnson spent inordinate amounts of time massaging their inner thighs and breasts.
