SAN ANTONIO – The president and CEO of Texas Psychological & Consultation Services, which specializes in counseling for adolescents, was arrested for indecency with a child by contact, court records obtained by KSAT Tuesday show.

Dr. Timothy Kimball, 43, was arrested on Aug. 24.

The girl’s mother had a strange conversation with Kimball that made her suspicious that Kimball may have touched her daughter inappropriately. She then searched her daughter’s room and found a hidden camera disguised as a USB charger.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, the mother also recalled that Kimball once told her “if the police ever went to his work they would discover things that would put him in jail for life.”

San Antonio police contacted Kimball at work and he agreed to give a statement.

The affidavit states that Kimball admitted to recording the victim using hidden cameras.

During the interview with police, Kimball told them he purchased four hidden cameras, which he placed in the victim’s bedroom and would view those recordings at his office while touching himself in a sexual manner.

He also admitted to becoming physically aroused while giving the girl a back massage.

Kimball told police he has a “compulsion to his perversion” and has attempted to deal with it, the affidavit states.

He also told police his actions and behaviors started at the beginning of August.

Kimball was released on $125,000 bond on Aug. 25.

It’s unclear if Kimball has been continuing with his counseling services since his arrest. He’s still listed on the practice’s website.

Kimball has been practicing for 18 years, according to an online biography.

A woman working at the business said Tuesday she would pass along a phone message from KSAT to Kimball.
