Investigators with the Crockett Police Department, with an assist from the Houston County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jonathan Paul Sensat, 48, of Crockett at his Belott area home. The arrest comes after a month-long investigation by Crockett Police Department into allegations of sexual misconduct, instances of which investigators say occurred while Sensat was giving massages at a local massage parlor.

During the investigation, multiple victims were interviewed and reported incidents involving sexual misconduct at the business. Statements obtained from victims were consistent indicating sexual misconduct occurred multiple times during these massage sessions.
