Massage Therapist Bernard Kimple Charged with Sexually Abusing Client While on Probation

A massage therapist in St. Louis has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a client during a massage at Morgan Ford Massage & Spa. Kimple was already on probation for a 2018 sexual assault of another client at a business in Des Peres.

Kimple has been charged with second-degree sexual abuse. He is accused of inappropriately touching a client.

He was reportedly on probation for a sexual misconduct charge in 2018 involving a client at a Des Peres massage studio. The alleged sexual assault in that case happened in April of 2018.

In the latest case, a client reported that Kimple sexually touched her genitals during a massage on or about January 27, 2020.

Kimple is not yet in custody and is still wanted by the St. Louis Police.

Justice For Massage Therapist Sexual Assault Victims

Attorney contributor Reed Martens represents sexual assault victims in civil lawsuits. Reed has extensive experience representing clients who have been sexually assaulted by massage therapists. Here's Reed with some general information on the legal rights of these victims:

Because of the sensitive nature of massage therapy, the owners of spas and massage studios have a critical legal duty to make sure their clients are safe. While most massage therapists are trustworthy, there have also been widespread reports of clients being sexually assaulted at massage studios throughout the country.

When a client reports that a massage therapist has sexually assaulted them, the police will investigate the allegations and the perpetrator may face criminal charges. However, the criminal justice system is not the only way for victims of massage therapist sexual assault to find justice. In many cases, these victims may also have grounds for a lawsuit against the massage studio for negligence.

For instance, a massage studio could be considered negligent if the perpetrator had a history of sexual misconduct but was hired anyway.
