Posted October 11, 2018 02:33:00 It’s a case of “Can you believe it?” said Roberta F. Johnson, who has spent nearly two years fighting charges that she sexually abused her masseuses over three years.
Johnson has been accused of sexually assaulting a number of female clients.
She said the abuse began after she began her career as a massage therapist.
She filed a lawsuit in November 2017.
According to the suit, Johnson, a registered nurse from West Palm Beach, Florida, began using a mobile massage app called Massage, which allows people to schedule appointments with a professional masseuse, called a Tammi.
The suit alleges Johnson was aware of the allegations against her.
The suit also claims Johnson “has engaged in conduct that was designed to exploit his position of trust with clients.”
Johnson is scheduled to appear in federal court on Thursday, October 17, according to the Palm Beach Post.
The Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office declined to comment on the case.
On October 10, 2018, the Palm County Sheriff’s Department received a tip from a Palm Beach County resident that Johnson had been involved in sexual activity with three different women.
According to a police report, the women told deputies Johnson had sexually assaulted them at different locations in the past.
Police said Johnson had previously been charged with rape in Palm Beach.
Johnson and her lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
