A 72-year-old Tippecanoe County man with a chiropractic clinic in West Lafayette, has been charged on felony and arrested under allegations of child solicitation and child molesting.
An investigation was started on Dr. Lon A. Kaminsky by the detectives of Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Office on Jan. 28 for child molesting involving a 13-year-old girl. Kaminsky was arrested and booked into the Tippecanoe County Jail and was held without bond. But he was later bonded out.
The girl’s family reported to police that during an appointment at Dr. Kaminsky’s Clinic on Nov. 17, 2016, the child was offered money for sex. They also added that in the past, Kaminsky had sent the girl gifts and flowers. They also added that since she was 11, she had been seeing the doctor.
The court documents further added that the victim had told investigators that Kaminsky had wrestled with her at appointments and she felt unease and weird. She added that during her last appointment, Kaminsky tried to pursue her three times by exiting and re-entering the room and then offering her money for sex. Finally, during his third attempt, the girl managed to record the doctor on her cell phone. The phone currently sits with the police as evidence.
The documents also state that Kaminsky had touched the 13-year-old inappropriately on two occasions.
