BRENTWOOD — A massage therapist has been convicted by a St. Louis County jury of sodomy for assaulting a customer in 2019, prosecutors said Wednesday.
Jinan Hu, 55, of Springfield, Illinois, was convicted of a felony count of second-degree sodomy, officials said. His attorney could not immediately be reached for comment.
A woman told police that on Feb. 20, 2019, she went to Happy Feet Day Spa in Brentwood for a scheduled massage, and Hu made unwanted sexual contact with her, prosecutors said.
Hu faces the possibility of jail time at his Oct. 22 sentencing, and must register as a sex offender with the state of Missouri.
