ST. PETERS, Mo. (KMOX) — A woman wanting to get rid of some excessive body hair may have gotten more than she bargain for.
Police have charged the owner of Cosmetic Laser Center in St. Peters, Branam Lawrence, with deviate sexual assault.
The victim told police after several hair removal sessions Branam started to touch her in areas which were not being treated as part of the laser hair removal process. She also told police the touching was sexual in nature and unwanted.
In 2011 Branam was charged in a similar incident.
That case has not yet been resolved in the State Court.
Branam was arrested at his business Tuesday. His bond is set for $100,000. He will be transferred to the St. Charles County Jail facility later today.
