An Ogden chiropractor, who already had past complaints of alleged molestation of female patients, has been charged with sexual assault of a woman in his office.

Second District Court records show that Michael W. Wimmer, 67, was charged Friday with second-degree felony forcible sexual abuse. The charge stems from an incident on June 25 when he allegedly clutched the woman's breasts and buttocks during an appointment at Wimmer Chiropractic Center, 413 Washington Blvd. in Ogden.

Ogden police Lt. Danielle Croyle said that while investigating the woman's allegations, detectives found it was not first time Wimmer had purportedly participated in "similar inappropriate and criminal behavior.

"The Department of Professional Licensing (DOPL) has received additional reports of similar type behavior involving Dr. Wimmer and have taken procedural action against him," she said on Friday.

"There are seven other reports of inappropriate behavior, though they may not rise to the level of the charge just filed [against Wimmer]," she said.

Still, Croyle said detectives are concerned there could be more potential victims, and investigators are urging anyone with such information to call them at 801-395-8221.

Wimmer was arrested Thursday and booked into the Weber County jail, then released after he posted $10,000 bail.

He is to make his first court appearance next Wednesday before 2nd District Judge Brent West.

DOPL records show that in November 1994, Wimmer had pleaded "no contest" to a lewdness misdemeanor involving a patient. In October 2006, Wimmer's license was revoked after he stipulated to having acted in "an inappropriately sexual manner" with another female patient, but DOPL stayed the revocation on condition of a 3-year probation.

One of the terms of Wimmer's probation was that he undergo, at his own expense, psychosexual evaluation. In October 2009, having met the probationary terms, his license was formally reinstated.
