A 70-year-old acupuncturist in New Jersey faces charges accusing him of touching a woman patient in a sexual way and practicing the traditional Chinese medical technique without a license.
Fort Lee police on Friday searched the office of Myung Ho Lee after a woman complained on May 4 that she had been inappropriate touched while receiving an acupuncture treatment, said acting Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir Grewal on Saturday.
Officers subsequently learned that Lee didn't have a valid license to practice acupuncture.
Lee was charged with fourth-degree criminal sexual contact and third-degree unlicensed practice of acupuncture, Grewal said.
Lee was remanded to Bergen County Jail in lieu of 10,000 bail.
There was no information available on whether he had obtained a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
