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.
