A massage therapist in Sandy, Utah accused of inappropriately touching a woman has been charged with forcible sexual abuse, according to a report from Deseret News.Charges from the woman say the massage therapist, 28 year-old Landon Jarvies, inappropriately touched her genitals after she told him she “needed attention on her neck, shoulders and groin.”


According to the charging documents, after the woman quickly pulled away from him, Jarvies allegedly told the woman that he “must have misread the signs.” The woman told Sandy police she didn’t know what signs he was talking about and that she did not request Jarvies to touch that part of her body.
