Amarillo doctor arrested on sexual assault of a child charges

Posted: Updated:

A former Amarillo neurosurgeon is facing criminal charges of sexual assault against a child and indecency with a child by sexual contact.

There's already a civil suit filed claiming the same against him.

No other details about the criminal investigation have been released, but he's out on $15,000 bond.

One lawsuit claims Dr. Jeffrey D. Cone coerced a minor into having sex when he was 15. 

The minor was a patient of Cone's since he was 9 months old and started working at the doctor's office when he was 15.

Cone owns and operates the Neurological Surgery Clinic in Amarillo.

The plaintiffs are requesting a trial and asking for more than a million dollars in damages. 

The minor's attorney, Lubbock's Kevin Glasheen says there are more than 10 other victims citing abuse against the former neurosurgeon.
