A former massage therapist at Spavia Day Spa in Fort Collins is accused of sexually assaulting multiple clients.

Massage Therapist Mark Struckmeyer Charged With Unlawful Sexual Contact

Fort Collins massage therapist Mark Struckmeyer was arrested on November 30, 2018 after multiple clients came forward with allegations of sexual touching during massages.

The 33-year-old massage therapist has been charged with four counts of unlawful sexual contact, which is a Class 4 felony.

Struckmeyer was employed as a massage therapist at Spavia in Fort Collins from September 3, 2018 until October 10, 2018. He also ran a private in-home massage therapy business.

Two women who did not know each other both contacted Fort Collins police in October to report sexual touching without consent during massages with Struckmeyer. According to a release from the police department, the women told police that Struckmeyer “exposed and touched their intimate parts.”

These alleged sexual assaults occurred during massages in September and October, according to court documents.

Police have urged anyone else who may be a victim of Struckmeyer to contact FCPS Detective Annie Hill at 970-221-6340.

Justice For Victims of Sexual Assault by Massage Therapists

At AbuseGuardian.com, our alliance of former sex crimes prosecutors specializes in representing victims of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. Our attorneys have represented several victims of sexual assault by massage therapists. Here are some thoughts on the legal options available to these victims:

Massage therapy businesses across the country have recently been plagued with reports of employees sexually assaulting clients. In a field that requires a high degree of trust between employees and their clients, it’s crucial that the owners of these businesses do all in their power to make sure their customers are safe from sexual predators.

When a customer reports being sexually assaulted by a massage therapist, it’s important to investigate both the accused employee and the business itself. While the criminal justice system will handle the prosecution of the accused, massage businesses can also be held liable in civil courts if their negligence is to blame for a failure to prevent the assault.

For example, a massage business might be considered liable if they had ignored previous complaints of sexual misconduct involving the accused employee.

In cases of negligence, victims of massage therapist sexual assault may have grounds for a lawsuit against the business. At Abuse Guardian, our attorneys have helped victims file lawsuits against nationwide massage therapy chains like Massage Envy.

If you or a loved one has been sexually assaulted by a massage therapist, you can learn more about your legal options by speaking with an experienced sexual assault victims attorney.
