An Aspen, Colorado, masseur is in trouble with the law after he was arrested for allegedly fondling and kissing a female customer, according to this news report. The man faces one misdemeanor count of unlawful sexual contact in connection with the incident. He also faces up to 18 months in jail and would have to register as a sex offender, if convicted. The judge has also issued an order forbidding the man from have any type of contact with the alleged victim.
The victim apparently told police that she went to the business for a back massage and was then taken to a table behind a screen. At some point during the massage, the victim said, she was told to lie on her back when the masseur kissed her without permission and touched her inappropriately.
Even relatively minor Colorado sex crimes can result in a requirement to register as a sex offender and complete sex offender treatment. Such a requirement mandates that you constantly update authorities about your residence and whereabouts and even require you to take polygraph tests to make sure you are compliant with your probation orders. A sex offender conviction can cause much devastation in your personal life, relationships, job, career and future.
