KHQ EXCLUSIVE: Child Molester Gives Massages In Spokane Valley

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - A massage therapy student at a local school is now giving massages to members of the general public. Kevin Duane Musgrove is a level three sex offender convicted of first degree child molestation. He's currently a massage therapy student at Carrington College in Spokane Valley. He began providing massages to the public late last week.

"You have to be accepted into that school. You don't just sign up," a former student told KHQ Local News, who requested to remain anonymous. The student said she did not want her identity disclosed because she feared for her personal safety, but she did add that the faculty was aware of the fact that he is a child molester.

"We were told that it was already known that the dean and the program director already knew," the student said.

Carrington College officials could only confirm to KHQ Local News that Musgrove is a student, but said they could not go into further detail due to student privacy laws.

Sunny Leighty received a massage from Musgrove last Thursday, but was never told of his past.

"I should have been told. Because if the public knows then I should, too," Leighty said. 

Ali Knecht was on a campus tour with her daughter at Carrington College late last week when she saw Musgrove go into a room with a client.

"I've been a licensed massage therapist for 19 years and I don't agree with people with that kind of history touching other people," Knecht said.

The former student says school officials told her Musgrove has a right to an education, but she doesn't think that education should be in massage therapy.

"How would the dean or the program director feel putting their mother, or their wife, or their daughter, behind a closed door without any clothes on with a registered sex offender to get a massage," the student said. "I don't think he should have ever been admitted to that program."

Carrington College's Response

KHQ Local News tried to reach out to the Spokane County Sheriff's Department, but it declined comment.
