WATCH: NDG massage therapist awaits sentence for sexual assault

An NDG massage therapist and store owner could be looking at jail time after he pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting 2 women.

At his sentencing hearing Tuesday, 49 year old Dave Kost told the court he was ashamed of his actions and would carry the shame for the rest of his life.

Crown prosecutor Anne Gauvin recommends a 9 month jail sentence, saying both victims suffer from anxiety and depression.

"It's not a breach of something that is only professional. It's a criminal act. It's a sexual assault, and it's nothing else but that,"  Gauvin told CTV News.

The defence has asked for a sentence to be served at home.

His lawyer says Kost has shown remorse and is on the sex offender registry.

He'll be sentenced in December.
