Family and Marriage Therapist Charged with Sexual Assault of 2 Patients
Last Update: 7/13/2020
Pasadena marriage and family therapist Edgar Gustavo Villamarin was arrested earlier this month for allegedly sexually assaulting two female patients and police suspect that there may be additional victims.
Authorities began investigating the 64-year-old therapist in November when a woman told police that Villamarin had sexually assaulted her. According to the police, their investigation uncovered corroborating evidence, and Villamarin was arrested.
Since Villamarin was first arrested, he has posted bail and been released. However, further investigations revealed another allegation of sexual assault dating back to January 2016. This second alleged victim also claimed that the assault occurred at Villamarin’s office on Orange Place during an appointment.
On January 9, Villamarin was arrested and charged with seven counts of false imprisonment, sexual assault, and sexual battery. He is currently free after posting $450,000 bail and has an arraignment scheduled for February 28.
Records show that Villamarin’s license was revoked in 1998, but this action was stayed. His license was also suspended for 90 days and he was placed on a five-year probationary period. The reasons for these disciplinary penalties are not available at this time.
Anyone with information related to this case or who believes they may be a victim has been asked to contact Detective Matt Crawford at (626) 744-3861 or Pasadena Police dispatch at (626) 744-4241.
