SEDONA, Ariz. - Accusations of drugging a teen and engaging her in sexual acts led to the arrest of a Sedona chiropractor and his wife at the end of January.

12 News reached out to Douglas Gilbert over the phone and in person to speak with him about the accusations, but he declined both times, saying he wanted to speak with his lawyer first.

Detectives with the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office said the investigation, which began in December 2016, led to the arrest of the Oak Creek chiropractor and his wife, Kimberly Korba, at the end of January. Gilbert has since posted bail.

Gilbert and Korba are accused of taking a teen camping, drugging her and engaging the minor in various sex acts.

The investigation revealed the victim’s mother was a patient who referred her daughter for treatment of emotional issues. The couple befriended the teen.

Detectives said visits to the chiropractor’s home and teas mixed with psychedelic mushrooms led to a camping trip in November 2016, with the chiropractor, his wife and the minor in the woods of Yavapai County. The couple suggested they give the 17-year-old a “loving sexual experience.” Investigators said when the teen said no, the two gave her alcohol, marijuana and mushrooms, then engaged the victim in various sex acts.

The Oak Creek chiropractor wouldn’t address the accusations on or off record Tuesday.

Based on their questioning, investigators said they fear there are other possible victims out there who may have been patients of Gilbert. If are also a victim or have other information about the case, contact Det. Rick Lopez with the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office at 928-554-8714. Anyone who wants to remain anonymous can call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1800-932-3232.
