Chester County Lawyers Represent Victims of Sex Abuse by Therapist at Local Massage Envy Franchise
Luongo Bellwoar LLP Represents Victims in Massage Envy Sexual Assault Case
By: LUONGO BELLWOAR LLP
One criminal complaint alleges that 63-year-old massage therapist James Deiter molested a female victim at the Massage Envy Spa on West Chester Pike during her massage. The 55-year-old victim had received regular massages from Deiter for months, and told police she had never previously felt uncomfortable during a session. Several other women have since stepped forward reporting similar incidents involving Deiter.
According to a spokesman for the Chester County District Attorney’s Office, Deiter “groomed” the victim by gaining her trust over a period of time before sexually assaulting her. Dieter “took advantage of a victim in a very vulnerable position.” Deiter was fired from the spa after the victim reported the incident.
After his arrest, Deiter provided police with the names of four other victims he had assaulted in the West Goshen spa. Any additional victims are urged to contact police.
