Masseuse at Imperial Foot Care Accused of Sexually Assaulting a Female Client

According to The Pitch KC, a massage therapist at Imperial Foot Care has been accused of sexually assaulting a client.

Xiang Jun Wang, a masseuse at the massage spa, allegedly trapped a client in a room with him, groped her, attempted to penetrate, chased her, and tried to crush her eyes for not submitting.

This victim's accusation was one of several complaints made against Wang and the Imperial Foto Care spa. The victim reported the incident to the police and has been attempting to get justice. Officers who received the report stated they believed the victim. The Pitch KC stated the officer's belief likely stems from having similar reports against the same spa.

Despite the victim's determination to continue the charges against Wang, the case continued to get passed over. The case initially would have been a felony case; it then dropped from a misdemeanor to a municipal ordinance violation. The case was initially surrounding the charges of attempted rape, assault, or battery, The Pitch KC stated.

While the case is still being looked at, the timeline of justice for the victim is unclear.

Legal Options of Victims Sexually Abused in a Massage Spa

Attorney contributor Reed Martens, an experienced sexual assault lawyer, has represented numerous victims of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. Below, Reed provides insight into the legal options of victims sexually assaulted by a masseuse.

"Across the United States, there have been numerous sexual assault cases against masseuses. Unfortunately, the massage industry continues to struggle with sexual assault, given clients’ vulnerable nature during treatment. Masseuses take advantage of their power and easy access to sexually abuse clients. Massage parlors must do their best to prevent this assault from occurring and provide a safe environment. Spas should implement security measures to provide this safe environment for clients. Examples of security measures are background checks of employees and easy reporting systems for clients."

"Massage spas have a legal obligation to provide a safe environment. If an owner does not implement security measures to ensure safety, they may be considered liable in cases of sexual assault by their massage therapist due to negligence. An example of negligence is if previous misconduct reports have been filed against a masseuse but were ignored and the masseuse remains employed. Victims of sexual assault in a massage parlor should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation for damages."
