KAYSVILLE, Utah, Sept. 20, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — A Kaysville chiropractor is facing two charges of first-degree felony rape after he allegedly sexually abused two clients.
Kenneth Pierce, 55, was arrested Saturday afternoon and transported to Salt Lake County Jail, where he is being held without bail, said a probable cause statement from the 2nd District Court of Davis County.
The arresting officer from Kaysville PD received a call from patrol advising him that there was a victim who reported that on Friday at 5:30 p.m. she left her chiropractic appointment from Right Now! Chiropractic at 150 N. Main St. having allegedly been sexually assaulted. The victim reported that during her two-hour appointment the chiropractor touched her inappropriately.
“She reported that while she was being sexually assaulted she froze and did not know what to do,” the statement said. She also said that Pierce told her it was an “after-hours appointment” and that he locked the door behind her and no one else was there.
“She was so terrified that she prayed that she would make it out of there,” the statement said. “She was worried that she did not want to make him mad. She believed she was being recorded and after the massage she looked around the room and observed what she believed was a mini ‘GoPro’ camera.” She said the camera was right up against the light fixture on the ceiling.
A similar case against Pierce was reported on May 7, that had allegedly occurred on July 7, 2020. “The victim in that reported that Kenneth had her come in for an after-hours massage and locked the door,” the statement said. He then allegedly touched her inappropriately.
Pierce was taken into custody and read his Miranda rights and asked about the appointment he had before he was detained. Pierce allegedly admitted to touching the victim inappropriately, but said “she wanted it.” He then requested an attorney.
Kaysville PD also issued a news release Monday, asking anyone who might have had a similar experience to call the police department’s victim advocate Jennifer Winchester, by calling 801-497-7120, by email at [email protected], or by calling the non-emergency line on 801-546-1131.
