Masseuse pleads guilty to criminal sexual conduct with client

(ABC 6 News) – A Rochester man pleaded guilty to non-consensually touching a massage client in Olmsted County Court Tuesday.

Qiguo Kang, 54, pleaded guilty to one charge of 5th-degree criminal sexual conduct — non-consensual sexual contact dating back to February 2020.

An additional charge of 4th-degree criminal sexual conduct — massage or bodywork for hire was dismissed.

Kang received an immediate sentence of two years of supervised probation and 99 hours of community service, in lieu of a $990 fine.
