Sentencing for a Coachella Valley chiropractor convicted of sexually assaulting female patients while pretending to be conducting legitimate examinations was put off today because the judge had a scheduling conflict.

No new sentencing date was immediately set, according to defense attorney Michael Khouri, whose client, Stuart Greenwood, faces up to several years in prison.


Khouri said he will seek probation for Greenwood, 61, who was convicted in June of two felony counts of sexual penetration by fraudulent representation, three felony counts of sexual battery under unlawful restraint and three misdemeanors counts of sexual battery.


Prosecutors said Greenwood molested the women — who came to his Indio office seeking treatment for back, shoulder and neck problems — under the guise of providing a gynecological examination after telling them a yeast infection was the source of their pain.

Greenwood was convicted of sexually assaulting the patients — who ranged in age from their 20s to their 60s — through touching and digital penetration between February 2005 and November 2008.
