Janesville chiropractor fined for touching a child inappropriately

Madison (WKOW) -- from WI Dept. of Regulation & Licensing:   A Janesville chiropractor agreed Tuesday morning to pay a fine after courts ruled he touched a child in a sexual manner.

  William E. Atkinson was ordered to pay $5,000 by the Chiropractic Examining Board and he must also complete remedial education in patient boundaries.

  The Rock County Circuit Court ruled that Atkinson had in fact touched a child patient in a sexual manner.

  Atkinson denied the charges, but agreed to pay the fine in order to resolve the issue.

  In 2002, a minor brought a personal injury lawsuit against Atkinson.

  During the course of that lawsuit, computer records indicate the minor was awarded a judgment of about $105,000, but records also indicate Atkinson has not paid.

  State records indicate Atkinson's current license to practice expires Dec. 14.
