Murrells Inlet chiropractor accused of sexually assaulting patient during adjustment
MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (WMBF) – Horry County police arrested a Murrell Inlet chiropractor who is accused of sexually assaulting a patient during an exam.
Online records show that William Hauck was arrested Monday morning and charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
An incident report shows that around July 2020, the accuser went to see Hauck at his practice along Frontage Road in the Horry County section of Murrells Inlet because she was having bad migraines.
Hauck asked her to lie on her stomach on the exam table so he could perform a back adjustment and that’s when the assault happened, according to the incident report.
“She was in shock and did not know what to do at the time. Suspect then ended the appointment as if nothing happened,” the incident report states.
Arrest warrants show that alleged assault happened “without medical cause or reason and without consent of the victim.”
Hauck was released from jail Monday afternoon on a $10,000 bond.
WMBF News called the Hauck Chiropractic and Wellness for comment but left a message. We’re waiting to hear back.
