JAMES CITY COUNTY — A former massage therapist who worked at the MassageLuXe location on Monticello Ave. was found guilty last Thursday of assaulting five victims. 

Shawn Lamonte Robinson, 48, was arrested back on Dec. 18, 2020 after a 41-year-old woman reported to the James City County Police Department (JCCPD) on Dec. 16 that she was assaulted on Dec. 15.

It was later revealed in a Mar. 25 news release from JCCPD that Robinson actually had his license revoked several months prior. 

Additionally, documents available through the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB) show that numerous clients made the massage therapy location aware of alleged assaults involving Robinson that occurred on premises.
