Why wasn't he arrested and charged for these crimes, in the past?
Instead of forced out? To allow him to go somewhere else to do the same?

I'm confused. I thought gymnastics was by its nature abusive. Isn't that what these parents paid for?

are you crazzy? what do you mean "isn't that what these parent's paid for?"? these parents did pay to have an adult send inappropriate emails to their 11 year old girl. by inappropriate they mean of an illegal sexual nature. and gymnastics gets a bad wrap by having some stories sensationalized by the media but is not abusive.

I would like to see all the facts, you never know what the media can blow out of proportion just to make a story.

I see he made a plea, hell I would have too to get out without life. I can't believe something like this can happen to a person that was such a great coach.

What's more abusive--a few dirty emails, or the life-threatening starvation diets that these programs promote?

You have got to be kidding! I am offended that anyone would suggest that they involved their children in a sport for the purpose of abuse. My daughter was involved for the love of the sport and we trusted this man. Maybe if all the other gyms that he had been involved with in the past had attempted to prosecute him instead of just passing along their problems to someone else, this would have not happened and all these children would have not been hurt. You should be ashamed of yourself!

All of the students were/should have been in the sport for the love of it. He was a good coach, but unfourt. this happened. I think we truly need to see the evidence to prove he did these acts. I am in the middle about what may have happened. Also how do we truly know what happened at other gyms??? Opinions are not always facts. What we all need to see is the facts, then maybe we can go pointing fingers.
