MAYFIELD, Ky. (WBKO) -- In Graves County, patients and employees of a Mayfield chiropractor are accusing him of sexual abuse.
The Paducah Sun reports Stephen McAdoo appeared in Graves County Circuit Court on Monday.
McAdoo pleaded not guilty to three counts of first-degree sexual abuse.
McAdoo was charged in March after the Graves County Sheriff's Office followed up on numerous claims from former employees and patients who say McAdoo touched them inappropriately.
A grand jury in October indicted him on three of nine felony counts.
Commonwealth Attorney, Mark Blankenship, says McAdoo will only agree to plea deals that temporarily forfeit his license, but not permanently take his license away.
The prosecution and defense have until the end of January to reach an agreement or opt to go to trial.
