Ex-therapist guilty of inappropriate touching

SALEM — A man accused by seven women of inappropriate touching in massage sessions has been convicted in Salem of sex abuse and invasion of personal privacy.

The Salem Statesman Journal reports that a jury voted Wednesday to find 23-year-old Bryce Cioffi guilty of two counts of sex abuse and two counts of invasion of personal privacy, and not guilty of six similar charges.

The former therapist from Turner denied the allegations, saying his massages were strictly therapeutic.

He was arrested in February after a woman filed a report with the sheriff's office. He surrendered his state license, and after news reports of the arrest, other women began coming forward.

Sentencing is set Dec. 10.
