ANDERSON (AP) — An Anderson massage therapist is accused of sexually assaulting two teenage girls who were receiving treatment at his office.
Sheriff’s deputies tell local media outlets that 57-year-old Jesus Garcia was arrested Monday and charged with two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
Garcia owns Garcia Massotherapy and Wellness Center. Deputies said the 15-year-old accusers were being treated there this summer when Garcia had sex with one of them and engaged in sexual acts with the other.
Sheriff John Skipper said deputies are still investigating. Garcia has been released from jail on $10,000 bond, and court records listed no attorney for him.
