Lynn massage therapist sentenced for sexual assault

WINCHESTER — A 50-year-old Lynn massage therapist was sentenced on Wednesday for sexually assaulting four women while working as a licensed masseuse at the Winchester Wellness Center.

Alexander Osher was found guilty by a Middlesex Superior Court jury on Monday of rape, assault with intent to rape and two counts of indecent assault and battery on a person over the age of 14, according to the Middlesex District Attorney’s office.

Osher was sentenced to nine to 13 years in state prison, prosecutors said.

The charges stem from separate complaints Winchester Police received from multiple women between Dec. 15, 2016 and Jan. 16, 2017 stating they had been inappropriately touched by Osher during massages, prosecutors said.

Osher was arrested on Jan. 18, 2017, prosecutors said.
