ENGLEWOOD, N.J. – An additional victim has come forward in the case of a former Leonia Board of Education member charged with sexually touching three other patients at his chiropractic office in Englewood, acting Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said Monday.

Archer L. Irby, 46, posted $2,500 bail and was released pending a Nov. 23 first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack after again being arrested last week by the prosecutor’s Special Victims Unit and Englewood police, Grewal said.

Irby, who is married and lives in Leonia, was charged with two counts of criminal sexual contact and one of lewdness for an incident that the prosecutor said occurred “in or around” April 2012.

Irby already had resigned from the Leona school board and signed a consent order with the state suspending his license amid charges that he “put his mouth on the bare breast” of one patient, exposed himself to another and inappropriately touched a third at his Irby Spinal Care offices in Englewood, according to State Attorney General Christopher Porrino.

Irby "hid behind his chiropractic license to use patients for his own sexual gratification,” Porrino said at the time.
