McKinney police have filed another sexual assault charge against a chiropractor accused of sexually assaulting several female patients.

The aggravated sexual assault charge is the fifth charge against Dr. David Russell, who turned himself in to police Tuesday before being released on $50,000 bond.

Russell was already out on bond after being accused of sexually assaulting four other patients, two adults and two children.

Late Monday, McKinney police took out another warrant on Russell for a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child. Police said the fifth victim, a child, came forward within the past 60 days. Police said there was enough evidence in the case to charge him.

"Dr. Russell maintains his innocence on all charges," Russell's attorney, Todd Shapiro, said in a statement to NBC 5. "As with the previous allegations, he looks forward to the day his cases will be heard in a Collin County District Court."

Russell's chiropractic license has been suspended, and he recently sold his practice, which now bears a new name.

"Dr. Russell continues to eagerly await his opportunity to clear his name, both personally and professionally," Shapiro said.
