Sumit Satish Rastogi, a former massage therapist, has been accused of a series of sexual offences in Adelaide, South Australia.
36-year-old Mr Rastogi worked at 4Ever Massage in Glenelg where two women reported him to the police for sexual assault.
Mr Rastogi’s lawyer told the court that his client would admit to the summary offences, which are multiple indecent filming charges.
“There is a substantial amount of charges. I’m in Your Honour’s hands as to whether the court receives the information signed by Mr Rastogi indicating which charges he pleads.”
Initially, in July 2022, Mr Rastogi was arrested and charged with rape, two counts of indecent filming and indecent assault. After more women came forward and made complaints, the South Australia police upgraded charges.
Mr Rastogi is now facing three counts of rape, 57 counts of indecent assault and 52 counts of indecent filming dating back to October 2021.
The court also heard that investigating officers estimated between 150 to 200 women could be identified in over 700 alleged indecent images that were found on his phone.
Mr Rastogi denies the rape and indecent assault charges and will face court again in June.
