TSB’s Top News Stories of 2013: Jury Convicts Ex-Chiropractor (No. 3)

A jury sentenced ex-McKinney chiropractor David Allen Russell to 23 years in prison for sexual assault on April 25.  Late the evening before, the jury found Russell guilty on five charges of sexual misconduct. Just after 9 p.m. on Wednesday, the 12-member jury sentenced Russell to prison time on each of the five counts.

The jury sentenced him to 15 years in prison on one count of sexual assault with a child. The sentencing options for this charge are a prison sentence ranging from two to 20 years and a fine up to $10,000.

On the other count stemming from the same victim, Russell was sentenced to eight years in prison for indecency with a child by contact. That charge also carries sentencing options ranging from two to 20 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000. Russell was not given a fine on either count.

Before ruling on whether or not the sentences would run consecutively or concurrently, Judge John Roach Jr. told Russell, “What you have done to these victims is atrocious. You should be ashamed of yourself.”
