RACINE — The Mount Pleasant man accused of sexually assaulting multiple women while giving them massages has surrendered his license.

On June 5, the Wisconsin Massage Therapy and Bodywork Therapy Affiliated Credentialing Board accepted 55-year-old Huaying Sun’s permanent surrender of his license. “The Board accepts the permanent surrender of Respondent Huaying Sun’s Wisconsin credential to practice massage therapy and bodywork therapy,” the final decision by the board stated.

The board will not accept any future application or attempts at renewal from Sun in regards to his massage therapy credential.

Should Sun apply for certain professional licenses in the future under Wisconsin state statutes — including barbering and cosmetology, crematory and cemetery jobs, or private security work — he would be required to pay $926 as a prerequisite to application.

Accusation of assaults

According to criminal complaints:

In 2011, Racine police spoke with Sun after a woman told police she had gone to a massage business at Regency Mall for a massage and was sexually assaulted. Sun asked the woman to undress, fondled her breasts and touched her genitalia.

In 2014, two additional women made similar claims. Racine police were approached on April 17, 2014, after a woman alleged she was also assaulted at the same Regency Mall massage parlor. On May 27, 2014, another woman stepped forward to say Sun also touched her inappropriately during a massage session and positioned his groin to be near her hand.

On July 13, 2017, Mount Pleasant police were contacted when another woman saw a news articles about Sun’s previous charges and reported she was assaulted in 2015. This time, the woman reported that the incident occurred at Body Oasis Massage Therapy, 5802 Washington Ave., in Mount Pleasant, which Sun owned.

The woman said she and her daughter had come to the facility in 2015 for massages. Her daughter went with a female technician and the complainant went with Sun. During the massage, the woman claimed Sun repeatedly placed his genitals close to her hands, even after she made multiple attempts to move her hands away.

The state suspended Sun’s credentials on July 26, 2017.

Criminal sentence

The Village of Mount Pleasant closed Body Oasis for several weeks in 2017 when village officials discovered the sexual assault charge against Sun and withdrew Sun’s business license.

The business was reopened after the village’s Finance/Legal/License committee approved Sun’s wife’s business license. The only condition of the license was that Sun was not allowed on business premises.

As part of a negotiated plea deal, Sun pleaded no contest to one count of misdemeanor fourth-degree sexual assault and three counts of misdemeanor battery. A felony count of third-degree sexual assault was dismissed.

On May 1, Sun was sentenced 60 days in jail and 18 months’ probation. If he violates terms of his probation, he will be forced to serve nine months in jail.

He was also ordered to pay $100 in restitution to one of the victims in the case.
