KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) –€” An amateur hypnotist in Kennewick who is accused of having sex with a woman while she was hypnotized can’t work at his job as a pharmacy assistant until the case is resolved.

The state Health Department suspended the license Tuesday of Kevin Geyer on charges of sexual misconduct. He has 20 days to respond and ask for a hearing.

The 25-year-old has pleaded not guilty in Benton County Superior Court to a charge of indecent liberties.

Court documents say he 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 woman told police she had vague images of Geyer sexually assaulting her and when she confronted him he responded by apologizing.
