Kansas massage therapist charged with sex crime

OLATHE, Kansas (AP) – A northeast Kansas massage therapist has been charged with sexually assaulting a woman.

The Kansas City Star reports that 47-year-old Freddy Perez-Cartagena, of Olathe, was arrested Tuesday on a Johnson County warrant charging him with rape and aggravated criminal sodomy. Court documents say the alleged sexual assault occurred on Aug. 13 in Shawnee.

Perez-Cartagena was released from custody later Tuesday after posting a $100,000 bond. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

Court records show Perez-Cartagena was previously charged in Johnson County with three misdemeanor counts of sexual battery. But he later pleaded guilty to amended charges of battery and was placed on probation. He was required to register as a sex offender until his probation was completed in 2010.
