Little Rock dentist sues over his arrest

Posted By on Wed, Nov 22, 2017 at 12:03 PM

KARK/Fox 16 reports that Dr. Jose Turcios, a Little Rock dentist acquitted of a charge that he'd molested a teen patient, has sued police officers who participated in his investigation and arrest.

Turcios, represented by Mike Laux, says one investigator was married to a dentist, giving him a conflict of interest, and two other investigators who were in a relationship and later married fabricated evidence so they could spend more time together. He said aspects of the investigation were mishandled and he'd suffered economically from an unjustified arrest.

Here's the full complaint, which names several Little Rock officers and state investigators, among others. Trucios was charged with kissing and fondling a 14-year-old patient who'd been given nitrous oxide during a dental procedure.

Laux has sued over events involving at least one defendant before — Tabitha McCrillis Carter, a defendant in a lawsuit over the fatal shooting of Eugene Ellison by Little Rock police working as private security at an apartment complex. Carter was at the scene but didn't fire the fatal shot.
