Erica Ragusa: Support for Wang Kho

Erica Ragusa

I am moved to write in response to the December 9, 2009 article, “Local massage therapist charged with sex assault on 18-year-old” because I am deeply saddened by the allegations that were made against my friend and colleague, Wang Kho.

Wang Kho was the first person that I met in Breckenridge and I have worked alongside him in his practice for nearly a year. In that time, Wang Kho has shown me and every one he encounters immense kindness, compassion, and humility. It is people like Wang Kho and his family who have contributed to the culture in our community by affecting us with their generosity, spirituality, and positivity.

In a case such as this, it seems that hearsay governs the course and innocent until proven guilty is not upheld. The charges that were made against Wang Kho are not only damaging to his name, his business, and his livelihood, they are terribly incongruent with his character. It is my hope that community members who know Wang Kho come to his defense by continuing to support Sol Impressions. He and his family have offered us, through their studio, a safe and professional space to learn meditation, practice yoga, and receive high quality massage therapy.
