A trial was confirmed to begin Thursday for an Indio chiropractor charged with sexually assaulting patients under the guise of medical examinations.

Stuart Greenwood, 61, who is out of custody on $100,000 bail, is facing eight felony charges: two counts of sexual penetration, and three counts each of sexual battery and sexual battery under unlawful restraint.

Defense attorney John Jimenez previously proclaimed his client's innocence, saying, “It will become evident there has been no wrongdoing by my client.”

Greenwood is accused of sexually assaulting as many as six patients between June 2006, when a woman claimed he touched her inappropriately, to April 2008, when another woman alleged the chiropractor penetrated her with his finger, according to a declaration filed in support of an arrest warrant.

He was arrested Feb. 18, 2009, at his office at 81-557 Doctor Carreon Blvd. in Indio.
