ATTORNEY GENERAL RAOUL ANNOUNCES DUPAGE COUNTY CHIROPRACTOR CHARGED FOR SEXUAL MISCONDUCT
Chicago — Attorney General Kwame Raoul today announced criminal charges against a DuPage County chiropractor over alleged sexual misconduct committed against former patients.
Terry Smith, 44, of Warrenville, Ill., was charged in DuPage County Circuit Court with two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, Class 2 felonies punishable by up to three to seven years in prison; six counts of criminal sexual assault, Class 1 felonies punishable by up to four to 15 years in prison; and 10 counts of criminal sexual abuse, Class 4 felonies punishable by up to one to three years in prison. He was arraigned on Aug. 22, and his bond was set at $200,000. His next court date is scheduled Sept. 27.
“The defendant used his position and the patient/practitioner relationship to take advantage of people when they were at their most vulnerable,” Raoul said. “I am committed to holding him accountable for his reprehensible actions, and I encourage anyone with additional information to contact my office.”
Raoul’s investigators, with the assistance of the Downers Grove Police Department and the DuPage Metropolitan Enforcement Group arrested Smith this week at his Willowbrook office following an investigation into allegations that Smith sexually abused and sexually assaulted former patients during examinations and treatments. The Attorney General’s office is encouraging residents who may have additional information to contact the Attorney General’s Investigations Division at 312-814-2584.
The public is reminded that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
Criminal Enforcement Division Chief Tim Diamond and Assistant Attorney General Megan McGuire are handling the case for Raoul’s Criminal Prosecutions and Trials Assistance Bureau.
