Amasseur at the Peninsula JewishCommunity Center sexually abused afemale client in February and commit-ted similar offenses on others outsidethe statute of limitations, according toSan Mateo County prosecutors.Prosecutors charged Victor JamesPetush, 27, with both felony and misde-meanor sexual battery, false imprison-ment and forcible digital penetrationwith a foreign object. He has pleadednot guilty and returns to court Aug. 5 fora pretrial conference and Sept. 9 for jurytrial.The woman accusing Petush hadreceived many massages at the FosterCity-based center butnever from Petushuntil Feb. 10,according to theDistrict Attorney’sOffice.The woman report-ed Petush began thesession with severalremarks about hergreat body and dur-ing the massagetouched her inappropriately, assaultedher with his hand and made her mastur-bate him, prosecutors contend.The frightened woman told him tostop but he persisted and she froze upand couldn’t leave, said Chief DeputyDistrict Attorney Karen Guidotti.The woman contacted police whoarrested Petush.Petush reportedly claims all contactwith the woman was consensual.Laura Toller Gardner, chief marketingand membership officer for the PJCC,said Petush was employed by its servicepartner, Club One, and not directly bythe center. He is no longer employed byClub One and Gardner emphasized thatboth organizations have impeccablesafety records and perform backgroundchecks prior to hiring.Petush is free from custody on a$100,000 bail bond. If convicted, hefaces up to eight years in prison on thepenetration charge alone.Defense attorney Josh Bentley couldnot be reached for comment.
