SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Prosecutors have dropped charges against a Utah chiropractor accused of charging people thousands of dollars for a phony weight loss scheme that he said required no exercise.

Michael Kunzler had been charged with 11 counts of felony communications fraud, forgery and exploitation of a vulnerable adult.

Kunzler’s attorney, Mark Moffat, has said his client adamantly denies the accusations and there was nothing fraudulent about Kunzler’s weight loss program.

Prosecutors said the 46-year-old Kunzler advertised a “Rebalance Weight Loss” clinic that used a special and rare machine.

He told senior citizen clients they didn’t need to exercise. Authorities say Kunzler refused to return the money when they complained.

The charges were dismissed without prejudice, meaning they could be filed again.
