Massage Therapist Maurice Williams Accused of Sexually Assaulting 2 Clients
A Menomonee Falls massage therapist has been accused of sexually assaulting two women during massages, including one alleged incident at Hand and Stone Massage Spa in Menomonee Falls and another at a West Allis massage business.
31-year-old Maurice L. Williams was arrested in April of 2019 after a woman told police that he had groped her at the Menomonee Falls spa in February of 2018. She told investigators that she was shocked at the assault and felt helpless.
Williams was also arrested in 2018 when another woman made a similar allegation involving an alleged sexual assault at a massage business in West Allis. However, no charges were filed in that case.
Williams has been charged with fourth-degree sexual assault for the alleged February 2018 assault. He could face up to nine months in prison if convicted on that charge.

Legal Options For Victims of Massage Therapist Sexual Assault
As a founding partner of AbuseGuardian.com, sexual assault victims lawyer Brian Kent has represented several victims of massage therapist sexual assault in lawsuits against massage therapy businesses. Here is Brian to share some of his knowledge on the legal rights of those who have been sexually assaulted by massage therapists:
Because of the sensitive nature of massage therapy, spas and other massage therapy businesses must make sure their employees are trustworthy. Massage therapists are alone with clients who are in vulnerable positions. This means that there is a high risk for abuse if sexual predators are working as massage therapists.
Unfortunately, the field of massage therapy has serious and widespread problems with massage therapists sexually assaulting clients. Many victims of these assaults have begun fighting back and taking legal action against the massage therapists who have assaulted them and the businesses where the assaults occurred.
In some massage therapist sexual assault cases, negligence by the business is partially to blame. For example, a business could be considered negligent for ignoring previous complaints of inappropriate behavior by a massage therapist.
