Rape suspect underwent sex therapy

A 23-year-old Spokane man accused of a year-old rape underwent sex offender treatment as a teenager.

Louis Victor Kuster underwent treatment  after he was accused of sexually harassing and inappropriately touching four girls while a middle school student in Stevens County. He pleaded guilty to four counts of fourth-degree assault with sexual motivation in 2002 and served two years probation.

After his arrest, detectives said in court documents that Kuster, then 14, “never appeared flustered, embarrassed or remorseful,” during interviews. “He did not seem to care about getting in trouble.”

His foster mother told police he needed counseling.

Kuster was arrested last week after DNA linked him to the rape of a 16-year-old girl on Jan. 1, 2010, police said.
