Northbrook personal trainer gets 2 years' probation for sexual contact with underage girls
Tribune staff report
September 23, 2008
A north suburban personal trainer was sentenced Monday to 2 years of probation after he pleaded guilty to sexually abusing two girls, Cook County prosecutors said.

Erik Pederson, 43, of the 2100 block of Dehne Road in Northbrook pleaded guilty before Judge Timothy Chambers to two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse for having sexual contact with two of his students last year, prosecutors said. They said Pederson ran a Winnetka company called All Star Fitness, and he worked primarily with young female athletes.

A 15-year-old girl told police in summer 2007 that Pederson had sexual contact with her, prosecutors said. A 16-year-old girl made similar accusations after the first girl's allegations were made public, they said.

this man just got probation?
how is this suppose to stop this type of behavior

Yes, he plead out. Terms are, he will never be allowed to coach a child under the age of 18 ever. He has to register as a sexual preditor. BTW I checked with the Chicago Bears and he was never ever a trainer with them, as he likes to tell people. I spoke with the guy who all trainers must go though. They are looking into that also.
If anyone ever sees he is with anyone under the age of 18, please call the police asap.
To anyone other person that he has had contact with under age. Please call the police. We know there are others out there. Erik is not who he says he is.
