A West Columbia chiropractor has been arrested for the third time in a week on charges that he sexually assaulted women during medical exams in his office.
Dr. Ronald Jeffrey Shows, 51, of West Columbia turned himself into the Lexington County Sheriff's Department Tuesday where he was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of assault with intent to commit criminal sexual conduct, according to a sheriff's department report. He faces up to 10 years in prison on each count.
Shows is scheduled to appear at 3 p.m. Tuesday in Lexington County's bond court.
And, more charges could be on the way after Sheriff James Metts reported that seven more women have called his investigators about Shows behavior during medical exams.
The latest charges involved three women. Two of them came forward last week after the sheriff's department reported Shows' first arrest. The third woman already had been reported as a victim but the sheriff's department filed an additional charge in her case, said Maj. John Allard, the sheriff's department spokesman.
