The Associated Press

BATH — A massage therapist from Topsham charged with inappropriately touching a client at the fitness center where he works has been arraigned.

Lionel Beaucage pleaded not guilty Monday in Sagadahoc County Superior Court to one count of felony unlawful sexual contact and two misdemeanor counts of unlawful sexual touching.

The 55-year-old Beaucage was arrested Sept. 18 after the woman told police that on Sept. 8 he inappropriately touched her at a Topsham fitness center where he works as a professional fitness trainer and licensed massage therapist.

His lawyer tells The Times Record that Beaucage "looks forward to his day in court."
