The former owner of a Sisters spa has reached a plea deal on multiple charges including sexual abuse and practicing massage without a license.

Michael Patrick Boyle was owner of Hop in the Spa. He was arrested in July 2021.

Court records indicate Boyle entered an Alford plea of guilty on Dec. 1 to two counts of third-degree sexual abuse, one count of first-degree attempted sexual abuse and three counts of practicing massage without a license.
