Anchorage Massage Therapist Indicted for Sexual Assault

April 28, 2021

(Anchorage, AK) – Today, an Anchorage grand jury indicted Anchorage massage therapist Jason Karpinski for two counts of Sexual Assault in the First Degree and eight counts of Sexual Assault in the Second Degree. The charges arise from in-home and in-office massages that Mr. Karpinski offered under the guise of his business after reaching out to hundreds of women via social media.

If convicted at trial, Mr. Karpinski faces sentences of up to 99 years imprisonment for each of the charges. These charges are only allegations and are not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial at which the prosecution must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Mr. Karpinski is currently in the custody of the Department of Corrections and is being held on a $5,000 cash performance bond. He is expected to be arraigned on the indictment on Friday, April 30, 2021 at 10:00AM in the Anchorage Superior Court.
