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.
