ALBANY - An Albany chiropractor was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty back in October to sexually abusing patients.
Seth Kohl received six years of probation.
Prosecutors say he had sexual contact with two patients at Albany Chiropractic on New Scotland Avenue -- one in February, the other in August.
One of the victims was in court for the sentencing and didn't want to hide her face or identity as she spoke.
"I cancelled so many needed doctor's appointments, because how could I trust another healthcare professional when one had already violated me," wondered Dorie Viovannetti. "I began this journey as a victim of sexual assault. I will continue this journey as a survivor of sexual assault."
Kohl forfeited his license as a chiropractor and will have to register as a sex offender.
