A Litchfield man is charged with sexual assault after he allegedly committed the offense while working as a massage therapist in Edwardsville. 55-year-old Ronnie L. Blom was working at the time for Massage Luxe, but is currently housed in the Madison County Jail.
The Madison County State’s Attorney accused Blom of sexually assaulting a female client during a massage on April 30. Edwardsville Police received a report from the alleged victim that day and began an investigation. Blom was arrested and charged on Wednesday. If convicted, Blom could be sentenced from four to 15 years in prison. Authorities say the owners of the business are cooperating fully with the investigation, and ask any other potential victims to contact Edwardsville Police at 656-2131.
