GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - A former Great Falls chiropractor has changed his plea to guilty in connection with the sexual assault of an employee.

The Great Falls Tribune reports (https://gftrib.com/1S121Gt ) that Reese Riggin pleaded guilty to one count of sexual intercourse without consent as part of a plea deal. The agreement has prosecutors recommending a 20-year prison sentence with 15 years suspended.

Riggin is accused of sexually assaulting an employee during a chiropractic adjustment he required her to receive as part of her employment. The victim worked for Riggin from 2009-2010.

Riggin’s attorney, Meghan Sutton, requested the sentencing hearing be held in the fall. She says the defense is in the process of having a psychosexual evaluation completed.

The judge indicated the hearing will likely be scheduled in the summer.
