Kennewick man accused of sex with hypnotized woman

An amateur hypnotist in Kennewick is accused of having sex with a woman while she was hypnotized.

Kevin Christian Geyer pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Benton County Superior Court to a charge of indecent liberties.

Court documents say the 25-year-old hypnotized the woman June 4 at his home. He reportedly had used hypnotism several times in the past to help her with her problems.

The Tri-City Herald reports the woman told police she had vague images of Geyer sexually assaulting her and later found evidence on her clothing. She says when she confronted him he responded by apologizing.
