Child psychologist arrested for indecency with a child
San Antonio, Texas: 43-year old Dr. Timothy D. Kimball was arrested back on August 24, 2022, but information about that arrest just began to hit local media last week.
According to court records obtained by KSAT, the CEO of Texas Psychological and Consultation Services (TPACS) was charged with indecency with a child by contact.
On their website TPACS claims to "provide highly specialized psychological serves to children, adolescents, and adults of all ages." While stating that a primary expertise is developmental disorders, the website states that "Other areas of expertise include comprehensive evaluation and treatment of children, adolescents and young adults, identification and treatment of ADHD, depression, anxiety disorders, behavioral problems, and trauma-related issues."
It is unclear whether Kimball still holds the position of CEO or not. There is currently no information provided on the website concerning what doctors work at TPACS and neither of the social media accounts have been very active.
It was not until October 19, following KSAT's reporting of his arrest, nearly two months after it had occurred, that the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services chose to terminate the contract they held with Kimball's practice. The reason they gave was that TPACS did not report Kimball's arrest to the state despite a requirement to do so.
According to an online profile viewed by KSAT, Kimball has been practicing for 18 years.
The day after his arrest Kimball was released after posting a $125,000 bond. According to court records, the case status is listed as "awaiting indictment" with the last event recorded on the case was September 27 when the case was assigned within the intake division of the Bexar County District Attorney's office.
The investigation began after a mother, whose 12-year-old daughter was seeing Kimball, became suspicious of him following a "strange conversation." It is unclear what prompted the conversation in which the mother alleged that Kimball had told her that "if the police ever went to his work, they would discover things that would put him in jail for life."
Following that conversation, the mother reportedly searched her daughter's bedroom and there, discovered a hidden camera made to look like a USB charging port. The mother then reported her information to the San Antonio Police Department.
Investigators with the SAPD contacted Kimball at his place of employment where he allegedly agreed to provide them with a statement.
According to Law and Crime, Kimball "admitted to recording the victim using hidden cameras."
Kimball is alleged to have further admitted viewing those recordings in his office while touching himself in a sexual manner as well as to have becoming physically aroused while giving the child a back massage.
Kimball is said to have claimed to have a "compulsion to his perversion" which he had attempted to deal with.
