Skeptic News: Chiropractor peeping tom caught

From: Delaware Online

A Wilmington chiropractor arrested early Wednesday after police say he allegedly was caught peering into the windows of a Newark home occupied by five female University of Delaware students could face temporary suspension of his chiropractic license, state officials said.

Sean B. Maas, 39, who police said lives in the first block of Chestnut Street, was released on $8,000 unsecured bail Wednesday on charges of felony burglary and misdemeanor resisting arrest, theft under $1,500 and trespassing with intent to peer or peep into a door or window, said Newark police spokesman Lt. Mark Farrall.

A passerby called police to report a peeping Tom at about 1:30 a.m. after noticing a man crouching by the first-floor windows of a home in the first block of Choate Street. Responding officers spotted a man matching the description and “running in a crouched position with female clothing hanging out of the rear of his pants,” according to court records. Items of women’s clothing were found on Maas and on the ground where he allegedly was seen running .

A motion filed Thursday by the state Attorney General’s Office with the Delaware Board of Chiropractic, which regulates chiropractic services and licensing in the state, stated that Maas “poses a clear and immediate danger to the health and safety of patients and the public if allowed to continue to practice chiropractic.”

Deputy Attorney General Barbara Gadbois asked that an emergency hearing be held and the board suspend Maas’ license until the criminal charges can be adjudicated.

Maas faces a preliminary hearing on the criminal charges Nov. 26.
