Chiropractor had long history of allegations

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Little Canada chiropractor recently charged with sexually assaulting a female patient had been allowed to continue practicing more than 20 years after allegations of improper contact first surfaced.

A Minneapolis Star Tribune report ( ) says allegations against Paul D. Thompson first arose in 1986. But he was given repeated chances until May, when he was charged with sexually assaulting a patient.

Thompson left a hearing Friday without taking questions from reporters.

Dr. Larry Spicer is the executive director of the Minnesota Board of Chiropractic Examiners. He says the board tries to reconcile whether a doctor can remain in practice and do so safely.

A 1991 board document details allegations that Thompson improperly touched women from 1986 to 1989. Other documents say he was placed on probation twice but kept his license.
