I used to work out at all star (the place he owned). He was a really nice guy, and sadly this is true.

well i was actually working out the day he was arrested. I was completely shocked, but we knew something was going on for quite a while. He had just recently divorced his wife, one story i heard was that he was living with a 17 year old in a consensual relationship, but that her parents and the police are the ones prosecuting him, and she agreed to testify. I hope that the girls are lying, but I dont think the verdict will be that.

Does anyone know what he is doing now? Where is he?

There are more girls other then the 2 that have come forward! The girls that he abused were 14 and 15.
If it's true about Megan, she is a victim as much as the other girls. So show some respect. He's a monster of the worst kind!!!

I used to work with Erik at his other establishment, this just completely sickens me. Children and parents trusted this man and he "allegedly" denied them the safety they deserve. Shameful. Any news on the trial?
