Columbia next to file charges against chiropractor

Mar 25, 2011 2:11:00 PM - thestate.com
A Lexington County chiropractor already facing multiple charges relating to improper conduct toward patients in Lexington County now faces new charges in Columbia.

The Columbia Police Department has charged Ronald Jeffrey Shows, 51, with two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

The charges follow the statements of two 45-year-old women who said they were sexually assaulted by Shows in April and August of 1987, when he practiced in an office at 1408 Elmwood Ave. in Columbia. That office is no longer open.

Shows received a $250,000 bond in Columbia Municipal Court today, the police department said. He is currently in the Lexington County Detention Center.

The new charges increase to at least four the felony charges faced by Shows. He was charged with similar charges earlier this month after five women came forward saying he acted inappropriately with them during visits to his Lexington clinic on Leaphart Road.
