38-year-old Kristopher Kane Kubisch was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of sexual penetration by force or fear. He was booked into Shasta County Jail and released after posting bail of $100,000. An arraignment is scheduled for June 7.

Mr. Thompson is an experienced sex crime attorney who has assisted countless victims in filing lawsuits against therapists for sexual abuse. Below, he shares some information regarding the right of victims to seek justice if they find themselves in such abhorrent circumstances.
“The massage therapy industry requires a high degree of trust between clients and the masseuses who serve them. Unfortunately, it is this same dynamic that produces a high potential for sexual abuse during massage sessions. Massage therapists are often alone with clients for an extended period of time. During this time, clients are placed in physically vulnerable positions.
When a massage therapist abuses their position and sexually assaults a client, the victim of the abuse has legal options that can help provide justice. Massage businesses must do all in their power to make sure that their employees are trustworthy and that their customers are safe. If this safety cannot be ensured and sexual trespassings take place, then the massage therapist as well as their employer may be held liable if the client decides to file a lawsuit.”
