A woman who claims she was sexually assaulted by an El Dorado Hills masseuse, is speaking out about her experience, hoping to save others from a similar fate.
44-year old Jill Howie went to Massage Envy for what she thought would be a relaxing massage. It turned out to be anything but.
"It just turned really bad very quickly. There wasn't a lot of conversation toward the end of the massage. He restrained me and assaulted me," Howie said.
She continued to say that while she wasn't raped, the effects were lasting,
"He physically hurt me, and I felt the results of that for a week and a half afterward."
She added that the emotional scars remain to this day. While a lawsuit being filed on her behalf seeks financial compensation, what Howie really wants is a change in company policies.
Specifically, changes that will help eliminate such assaults and offer specific recourse for future victims.
