Traverse City Massage Therapist Sentenced to Jail for 4th Degree Sex Crimes

A Traverse City massage therapist who pleaded guilty to fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct learned his sentenced on Tuesday.

In 2018, a woman accused Jeffry Knapp of misconduct during a massage and he was charged with CSC of the third degree in 2019.

A plea deal dropped that charge down to fourth-degree CSC.

On Tuesday, Knapp was sentenced to 9 months in jail with 36 months of probation.

The judge gave Knapp over 3 months’ worth of credit for time already spent in jail.

The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs suspended his license in October.
