A North Texas chiropractor has been convicted of five counts of sexual abuse of female patients during examinations.

The penalty phase begins Wednesday for 44-year-old David Allen Russell of McKinney. He faces up to life in prison.

Investigators say some of the victims were teenagers.

A Collin County jury Tuesday night convicted Russell of sexual assault of a child, two counts of sexual assault and two counts of indecency with a child by contact.

Russell did not testify during his trial involving abuse allegations between 2002 and 2011.
