Judge Convicts Edward Raskin of Sexually Assaulting Patient at Spirit Acupuncture in Springfield
On Wednesday, a judge found acupuncturist Edward Raskin guilty of sexually assaulting a patient at Spirit Acupuncture in Springfield, NJ in 2017. This conviction came following a two-week trial.
The prosecutor’s office alleged that Raskin had sexually assaulted an adult patient during an appointment at Spirit Acupuncture on December 30, 2017.
Raskin and his defense waived the right to a trial by jury. Judge DiFabrizio then convicted him of second-degree sexual assault and fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct.
In New Jersey, second-degree sexual assault convictions are usually punishable by 5 to 10 years in state prison and a minimum of 85 percent of the term served before the possibility of parole.
Raskin also had an office in New York City. Prosecutors have asked anyone with information regarding Raskin to contact Sgt. Santos at 908-577-4256 or Sgt. Mirabile at 973-912-2242.
