An Elizabethtown chiropractic doctor detained in December on 2 sex offense felonies involving minors who were clients has been arraigned on the charges by a Hardin County grand jury.
Matthew J. Colasanti, 33, of Radcliff, was indicted on one count of first-degree rape and one count of first-degree sexual assault of two ladies.
Colasanti, who runs Colasanti Chiropractic on Ring Road, was apprehended Dec. 7 and launched from the Hardin County Detention Center Dec. 11 on a $50,000 money bond.
According to an arrest citation, on Nov. 25, a juvenile woman relative of Colasanti told Elizabethtown police he provided to provide her a back modification and while she was lying face down on a table he apparently started to fondle her and then raped her, according to an arrest citation.
The woman jumped off an examination table and encountered a bathroom “up until another adult worker entered into the office so she might leave,” the citation said.
Another reported victim, 16, was touched wrongly during almost all of her visits while getting her back adjusted from last April through June, according to the citation. She had visits as soon as a week for three months and informed police Colasanti “would not touch her when she was generated the workplace by a grownup.”
He was arraigned for first-degree rape, a Class B felony punishable by 10 to 20 years in prison, if founded guilty, while first-degree sexual abuse is a Class D felony punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted.
A grand jury indictment is not proof of regret but a decision that adequate evidence exists so the case should progress in the judicial system.
