PORTLAND, Tenn. (WZTV) -- A 69-year-old massage therapist has been charged with rape and sexual battery involving two female clients.
The Portland Police Department reports an investigation was launched into the actions of James D. Hall, operator of Sunrise to Sunset Massage Therapy at 124 Main Street.
On Sunday, Feb. 21, a woman filed a report alleging during a massage, Hall inappropriately touched her genital area multiple times, including digital penetration, and made verbal sexual advances. The next day, another woman filed a report alleging she too was touched by Hall in her genital area inside her underwear.
Police say evidence was found corroborating the allegations and Hall told detectives his actions were "too much" and it was a "failure on his part."
Hall was arrested on Thursday and booked into the Sumner County Jail on $100,000 bond.
