Richland Chiropractor Pleads Guilty to Lesser Charge

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- Richland chiropractor Dr. Jeffery Sullivan pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of Communication with a Minor for Immoral Purposes Wednesday, allowing him to avoid felony charges and time in prison.  

Sullivan was originally charged with second degree child rape amid allegations he raped and fondled a 12-year-old female patient.  Prosecutors lessened the charges in exchange for the guilty plea. 

Prosecutors recommended a year in jail, with 305 days suspended, and a sex-offender evaluation.  

Sullivan will be sentenced June 25.  

He's still not allowed to practice as a chiropractor.
