    Five of the victims expressed fear of Russell to police. Numerous others told police they complained to the chiropractic office's manager and to the state board of chiropractors. Others said they contacted police about the incidents far before the current charges were filed.

    In some of the possible incidents, the statute of limitations may have run out.

    At the conclusion of the hearing, Russell was re-arrested and booked in the Collin County jail on a $100,000 bond for one count of sexual assault.

    Russell must surrender his passport and cannot leave Collin County.

    Additionally, Russell is to have no contact with alleged victims or any minors.
