KAYSVILLE — Ten felony charges were filed Wednesday against a chiropractor accused of inappropriately touching two female clients during after-hours appointments.

Kenneth Walter Pierce, 55, of Kaysville, is charged in 2nd District Court with object rape, a first-degree felony, and nine counts of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony.

On Saturday, a woman called police shortly after leaving her appointment at Right Now! Chiropractic, 150 N. Main in Kaysville. The woman had booked an appointment for a two-hour massage.

The woman told police nothing inappropriate happened during the first hour. But during the second hour, Pierce inappropriately touched her multiple times, according to the charging documents.

After police were contacted, detectives recalled similar allegations made by another woman. In July, she reported being inappropriately touched several times while receiving a massage, the charges state.

Both women reported that Pierce scheduled their appointments after hours and locked the business door after they entered, according to a police booking affidavit. When questioned by police, Pierce told officers that the women wanted to be touched in those areas, the affidavit states.

Prosecutors have requested that Pierce be held in the Davis County Jail without bail pending his next court hearing.
