This"coach" really needs to not be around any children at all. I know he is still allowed at the ball fields and the schools because I have seen him there and it makes me quite nervous

{ This is a true statement and he still walks around like nothing ever happen. How is this possible? This coach should be held to the same standard as the mentor teacher was)

Teachers and coaches who target children with their sexual advances are the worst kind of pediphile. This investigation should have been of the highest priority. What is more important than our children's safety?

I would be scared out of my mind if a coach at my school was still allowed to be around after something as sickening as that.
i feel bad for all the younger teens who live in this area.

Geneva, Edgewood, and Jefferson all have open enrollment. Take advantage of it....and best of luck in the future with your daughter.

5 months for an investigation. They have her statement. I'm in law enforcement in Florida and it does not take 5 months. This pervert would have been in jail for the last 5 months. He took advantage of a young girl. Not because she liked it as some idiot wrote, it was because she trusted him and she was obviously looking for love and attention. My heart goes out to the family of both.

Michael Franklin is a former Ashtabula City School Board Member. Should he be involved with this case? I agree with Roger McCoy post-go to Jefferson or Geneva (open enrollment).

just one more thing that ashtabula covers up. i would be getting a lawyer. and not one from ashtabula. good luck to the McCoys, they should not have to transfer their daughter because of the criminal actions of a coach. (who probably has friends in high places around here.)

Not only does he walk around town free. He tells everyone the charges have been dropped and that he will still be coaching at the school this fall. The daughter of this man is only 1 year younger than the poor girl he victimized and they go to the same school. Not only has she had to deal with him but also her schoolmates who do not understand. Ashtabula will always be the good ol'boy system. He was once basketball all county star. The young girl should not have to change schools, this can happen anywhere. But the family should have justice and should of already had it. This guy preys on young girls this is not his first attempt.

Ashtabula is also handling my daughters case against my husband it's been almost two years since she said about it and they never investigated. After phones calls and i even talked to the detective in person and he stated he would call me and never did. I have seen him in the streets doing street partole which is the some on this case.

Is ashtbaula saying it's ok for of adults who rape kids or even have sex with them is ok

The word on the street this guy is planning to move to Florida next week. When his name comes out go to the Ashtabula Municipal Court website and go to cases and type in this mans name and you will see he has a full page of offences over the last twenty years.Who the hell hired this guy to be a coach? They should all be sent down the road from Mr.Donatonne the superintendant on down and Mrs.Reichert the principal at Lakeside Jr.High. This has been a cover up from day one.Good Luck and god bless the McCoy family.

Sadly not many people were very suprised when we heard that this happened once we found out which coach it was, maybe the hiring process should be a little more indepth. We are all hoping for justice in this case.

This person really needs to do their homework before they start making an allegation such as this man has a 20yr long record of offenses. I was curious so i looked it up...duh all but ONE are traffic tickets & a big disorderly conduct. So this guy may have "record" as you inaccurately reported to the rest of the world, but they are for traffic violations. And for the rest of you knowledgeable folks out there, as frustrating as it may be, most investigations of this matter always drag on. This man has been fired from the school system so they (school system)did what they were supposed to do with any alleged misconduct of any nature regrading a staff member. Do your homework before you start reporting the news!

Change schools for what reason? The coach has been fired from the school system. As far as the coach walking around free; what should any person do that is under any type of investigation do but try to live a daily life and wait for the outcome? This is not to downplay the seriousness of these allegations, but when ignorant Ashtabula gossip begins...watch out because in that town, gossip & hearsay rule over any common sense! That town is a crappy place to live for many reasons...who wouldnt want to get outta there! In fact, a lot of people are presently moving out of this particular town for obvious reasons...no jobs, a dying city, stores & businesses closing everyday, bad politics with poor city management.etc. who wouldnt want to get out of there? The city is broke! The only thing thriving in Ashtabula is gossip & hearsay!
