Cape Coral Massage Therapist Charged with Battery

Attorney Analysis: In the second section of this article, you'll find legal commentary from massage therapy sexual assault lawyer Michael Haggard on the legal rights of massage sexual assault victims.

63-year-old Cape Coral massage therapist Kou Hua Lin has been charged with battery after a customer accused her of touching him inappropriately.

Liu was arrested on March 3 at Sunshine Asian Massage, which is where the alleged inappropriate touching is believed to have occurred.

The man told police that he went to Sunshine Asian Massage for a shoulder massage, but that Liu offered sexual services for a price. The man says that he refused and that Liu grabbed his genitals, continuing to push to sell sexual services.

According to investigators, he ran from the massage business and went next door, where he dialed 911.

Liu was booked at Lee County Jail on one charge of battery and was released on bond.

Who is Liable for Sexual Assault by a Massage Therapist?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard is a sexual assault victim lawyer who has represented several massage therapy sexual assault victims in civil lawsuits against massage companies like Massage Envy. Michael has offered to share some of his knowledge on the legal rights of these victims:

Massage therapy is an industry that requires trust. Most massage therapists are indeed trustworthy, however, there have also been widespread reports of massage therapists sexually assaulting their clients. Many of the victims of these crimes have started taking legal action by filing lawsuits against spas and massage studios.

The owners of these businesses have a legal duty to make sure their customers are safe from sexual predators. When a customer is sexually assaulted by an employee, we should ask if the business owner met this legal duty. If not, the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit.
