EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — An Eau Claire chiropractor is accused of sexually assaulting a female patient.

Forty-four-year-old Jeremy Stender is charged with second-degree sexual assault and is free on a signature bond. Prosecutors say Stender had sexual contact with the patient while working at Wolter Chiropractic in 2012. Stender has denied any inappropriate contact with the woman.

A criminal complaint says Stender told the patient it would be his word against hers in any report of sexual contact.

The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram (http://bit.ly/SSOo29 ) says Stender is due in court July 23.
