A reflexologist with a foot fetish who sexually assaulted a female client by licking her toes while she slept has been spared jail.  

Ryan Jones, 32, of Arscott, Pontesbury, Shropshire, was hired by his victim who hoped foot massages would help her sleep, a court heard.

But the self-confessed feet ‘fantasist’ photographed himself licking her toes – which was not part of the therapy – as she slept.

Jones – who previously pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault – was jailed for eight months, which was suspended for two years. 

Ryan Jones, 32 – who sexually assaulted a female client by licking her toes while she slept – has been spared jail at Shrewsbury Crown Court (file image, pictured) today 

The woman became suspicious of his motives when he stopped charging for his services, Shrewsbury Crown Court was told.

She decided to secretly film one of the sessions – which took place at her home – on her laptop and captured him putting his mouth over her toes in October 2018.  

When police arrested Jones they found an image he had taken of the incident on his mobile phone.

His victim said that she felt ‘violated’ and her trust had been ‘betrayed’ by him, 

Sentencing him, Judge Peter Barrie said: ‘You had a sexual fantasy for her feet. Somebody with that predilection who set up business as a reflexologist is asking for trouble.’

In mitigation, Kevin Jones said the defendant had immediately admitted his actions to the police and blamed it on issues from his childhood. 

‘In context of sexual touching, the touching was of her feet,’ the lawyer said.

Jones had since lost the business which had been catering for up to 40 clients, he said.

The defendant had voluntarily sought rehabilitation by seeing a psychotherapist since the incident. 

Judge Barrie ordered Jones to pay £200 within 28 days and to follow an accredited sex offenders’ programme – which includes up to 30 days of rehabilitation – with probation.

He also ordered the forfeiture and destruction of the mobile phone. Jones will be made subject to the sex offenders’ register for 10 years.
