Sentencing begins for chiropractor

A suspended chiropractor heard the emotional words of his victims read to him in Grand Court on Wednesday (26 October) as the sentencing phase began for Jemal Khan following his guilty pleas to charges of indecent assault and insulting behavior.

Queen’s Counsel Patrick Moran told the court, “Mr. Khan abused the trust of his patients in a manner that can only be described as distasteful.” He is accused of instructing numerous patients over a period of years to disrobe more than would normally be expected of chiropractic patients. The conditions behind each count of indecent assault were read aloud by Mr. Moran, including incidents of touching women on or near their most intimate areas. The counts also included two incidents where Khan took photographs of patients while they were naked in his George Town clinic. After describing each count, Mr. Moran would refer to the victim’s impact statement.

“He raped me of my trust,” one woman wrote.

Mr. Moran said that while conviction of a single count of indecent assault could bring a maximum prison sentence of ten years, the sentencing guidelines are less clear on how to handle a multitude of convictions and whether the prison sentences should be served consecutively or concurrently.

Mr. Justice Charles Quin will pass down his sentence to Mr. Khan on 16 November.
