A massage therapist at the Massage Envy in Ventura is accused of sexually assaulting a customer.

Massage Envy Massage Therapist Charged with Sexual Battery, Digital Penetration

A massage therapist at the Massage Envy location in Ventura has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a customer at the conclusion of her massage at the business. 29-year-old Anthony Wearing was arrested on Tuesday, June 11 and is charged with two felonies – sexual battery and digital penetration.

The woman contacted the police on Saturday, July 8 and told investigators that she had been sexually assaulted near the end of a 90-minute massage at the Ventura Massage Envy, located at 103 South Mills Road, earlier that day.

Detectives reportedly discovered evidence to back up the woman’s allegations and arrested Wearing in the parking lot of a 24 Hour Fitness on Telegraph Road in Ventura the following Tuesday afternoon.

Wearing had worked for Massage Envy for less than two weeks but was a licensed massage therapist for two years.

Detectives have voiced concern that there may be other victims who have not come forward. Anyone who may have been a victim or who has related information in this case has been encouraged to contact Detective Alyse Quiroz at 805-339-4413.

Legal Recourse For Victims of Sexual Assault by Massage Therapists

Attorney contributor Brian Kent of AbuseGuardian.com is a former sex crimes prosecutor who has represented numerous victims of massage therapist sexual assault – including several victims in multiple lawsuits against Massage Envy. Here are a few of Brian’s thoughts on the legal options available to these victims:

Massage therapy has become extremely popular in the United States, with thousands of businesses spread throughout all 50 states. Because of the intimate nature of this profession, it’s crucial that all massage therapists are thoroughly screened and that no sexual predators are permitted to work in these businesses. Additionally, massage therapy businesses must take any allegations of sexual misconduct seriously and report those allegations to law enforcement.

Nationwide chain Massage Envy has come under fire over the past few years after numerous employees have been accused of sexually assaulting clients during massages. Furthermore, the chain has been accused of negligently handling these allegations and even allowing accused massage therapists to work in other locations. This has led to a slew of lawsuits against Massage Envy.

If you’ve been sexually assaulted during a massage at Massage Envy or another business, you have legal rights. Our attorneys are currently representing several clients in lawsuits against the chain.
