Oklahoma City Chiropractor Arrested
Oklahoma City Police arrest a chiropractor after they say a woman claimed he offered her sex in exchange for chiropractic services. Police arrested Doctor Shandy Sells at his office Monday afternoon. Officers say a patient called them, then they conducted a sting operation.
"This man was offering services in exchange for sex, which obviously is against the law," said Msgt. Gary Knight.
On Monday, a chiropractor turned into an accused criminal. The allegations against Dr. Shandy Sells led to an arrest.
"This happened as a result of a lewd proposal that was made," said Msgt. Knight. "A woman had gone into his office. The chiropractor offered chiropractic services in exchange for sexual relations."
Oklahoma City Police say that woman called police after her visit to the Sells Chiropractic Clinic. Officers arrested Dr. Shandy Sells on a complaint of "offering to engage in an act of prostitution."
"The board's purpose is to protect the public's safety, health and welfare," said Beth Carter, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
The Oklahoma Board of Chiropractic Examiners says it's important to do a background check on your chiropractor before you book your appointment.
"You want to make, as a consumer, a good choice in someone that you're going to make sure that he or she, you know, doesn't have any prior disciplinary actions," said Carter.
Check if your chiropractor is licensed and check is he or she has ever been disciplined by the Board of Chiropractic Examiners. You can see a list of disciplined chiropractors on the following website:
"Complaints aren't public information," said Carter. "Only if there's been a disciplinary action."
Dr. Sells has been licensed as a chiropractor in Oklahoma since January of 2006. Since then, the Board of Chiropractic Examiners says he's had no complaints against his license and he's faced no disciplinary action.
Dr. Sells bonded out of jail on Monday. We tried calling Dr. Sells' office, but it had already closed for the day.
If you ever have questions about a chiropractor, or want to make sure a chiropractor is licensed, you can reach the Oklahoma Board of Chiropractic Examiners by calling 405-524-6223.

Teen in devastated Okla. town handing out hugs
May 25, 2013 02:26 GMT
MOORE, Okla. (AP) -- The people of the Oklahoma town where a deadly tornado struck could use just about everything -- cleaning supplies, food, water, shelter.
Thirteen-year-old Halle Carr thought residents of her hometown could also use a hug after the twister Monday that killed 24 people in Moore.
Halle has been standing on a corner with a white sign that reads: "Need a hug? I am here!" And people are taking her up on the offer.
On Friday, people in work trucks, cars and vans loaded with belongings rolled down their windows and reached out their arms to the girl. Some shouted words of encouragement.
Halle said it makes her feel good to spread a little cheer. She said she'll come out every day, as long as she thinks she's needed.
