Massage practitioner accused of sexual misconduct

State health officials have suspended the license of Snohomish County massage practitioner Judson Karl Lentz on sexual misconduct charges.

The state agency alleges that Lentz rubbed a client’s breasts during several massage appointments, engaged in inappropriate touching of a client’s private areas and other sexual acts.

Lentz can’t practice in Washington until the charges are resolved, and has 20 days to respond and ask for a hearing.

The Department of Health took the action to immediately suspend Lentz’s license Friday.

Documents outlining the case are available at fortress.wa.gov/doh/providercredentialsearch.

The Department of Health licenses can take disciplinary action on a variety of professions providing medical services to the public.
