Legal Options For Victims of Massage Therapist Sexual Assault
Attorney contributor and massage therapist sexual assault lawyer Kevin Biniazin is a former sex crimes prosecutor who now represents survivors of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. Here is his perspective on the legal options available to those who have been sexually assaulted by massage therapists:
Over the past several years, massage therapist sexual assault has been making headlines across the country. Massage therapy requires a great degree of trust between the customer and massage therapist, but some massage therapists are sexual predators who violate this trust by sexually assaulting their customers. According to a 2017 report by BuzzFeed News, more than 180 people have reported sexual assault at nationwide chain Massage Envy. This year, dozens of other victims have brought lawsuits against Massage Envy and other businesses for their failure to keep their customers safe.
If you or a loved one has been sexually assaulted by a massage therapist, you have legal rights in both criminal and civil courts.
