Unlicensed Massage Therapist Stephen Boyd Accused of Sexually Assaulting Customer

An unlicensed massage therapist has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a customer during a massage appointment at his business in University Park. 58-year-old Stephen Boyd was charged with sexual assault on June 6 after the customer contacted police concerning an alleged assault at Boyd Massage in Snider Plaza.

According to an affidavit, Boyd had been practicing as an unlicensed massage business since his massage license expired in 2007.

A woman contacted police on June 3 about an alleged sexual assault that she said had occurred a few days earlier during an appointment at the business, located at 3415 Westminster Avenue.

Dallas police are concerned that there could be other victims and are actively seeking the public's help in identifying others. Anyone with information related to this case has been encouraged to contact University Park Police Department Detective Jennifer Johnson at 214-987-5360.

Legal Options Available to Victims of Massage Therapist Sexual Assault

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents victims of sex crimes in civil lawsuits. Marc has experience representing numerous clients in sexual assault lawsuits against massage therapy businesses. Here are a few of his thoughts on the legal rights of those who have been sexually assaulted by massage therapists:

Massage therapy is a sensitive business and it's critical to make sure that massage therapists are trustworthy people. Sadly, there have been hundreds of reports of massage therapists sexually assaulting their clients across the country. When this happens, it's important for the victims to be aware of their legal rights.

In many cases of massage therapist sexual assault, the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the business where the assault occurred. This may apply in cases of negligence, such as when a business hires a massage therapist without first running a background check or allows an unlicensed massage therapist to see customers.

Each massage therapist sexual assault case is unique and the available legal options depend on the circumstances of the case. If you or a loved one has been sexually assaulted by a massage therapist, you can learn more about your legal rights by contacting an experienced sexual assault victims attorney for a free consultation.
