Former Massage Therapist Godfrey Diaz Romero Accused of Sexual Assault, Unlawful Practice

Attorney Commentary: See the second part of this story for commentary from lawyer Kevin Biniazin, who will discuss filing a massage therapist sexual assault lawsuit.

A former massage therapist who has not been licensed since 2004 has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting two clients. 60-year-old Godfrey Diaz Romero was arrested on Monday at his home in Queen Creek.

He has been charged with sexual assault, kidnapping, fraudulent schemes, and unlawful practice.

Court documents say that on April 19, a woman went to see Romero at his home for a massage based on a friend’s recommendation. The victim told police that Romero put his hands under her underwear and sexually assaulted her during the massage. He allegedly sat on top of her to prevent her from pushing him off and getting up. She eventually freed herself and left.

According to the police, a second victim came forward on June 4 to report a sexual assault by Romero. This victim is a 17-year-old girl who told police that Romero touched her breasts and private area during a massage.

Romero reportedly admitted to inappropriately touching the women, according to Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies.

Can I Sue a Massage Therapist For Sexual Assault?

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin has represented several massage therapy sexual assault victims in civil lawsuits. Kevin has some thoughts to share regarding the legal rights of these victims:

Sexual assault is a crisis affecting the entire massage therapy industry, as there have been hundreds of reports of massage therapists sexually assaulting clients throughout the country. Many victims have fought back by filing police reports and lawsuits against predatory massage therapists and negligent massage studio owners.

In many cases, victims may have grounds for a sexual assault lawsuit against the massage therapist who assaulted them, the business where the assault occurred, or both parties. Determining your legal options will depend on the circumstances of your case. These decisions are best made with guidance from an experienced sexual assault victim lawyer.
