9th Grade Girls Basketball Coach Charged With Criminal Sexual Conduct
I guess thanks to the Deadspin comments section for making me aware of this story, although I wish I didn’t have to hear about this sort of shit:
Todd Gau, 38, from Monticello, Minnesota, was charged on May 5th with Fourth-Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct – Position of Authority, stemming from “innapropriate sexual contact” with a player. He is an assistant coach with the Monticello High School 9th grade basketball team.
The complaint states the relationship was reported by a player to a member of the Wright County Police Department in late February. The player told the officer “basketball had become weird” because of the relationship with the coach.
The report states the two frequently exchanged text messages, kissed and had other contact away from the basketball court.
Although Gau does not teach at the school, he is employed by the Monticello School District.
The complaint further alleges that “when they were in a parking lot of an elementary school, he put his hand under the girl’s sports bra. He then sent her another text message saying, ‘want more than my hands on your chest. LOL.'”
What a fucking scumbag. Castration is too good for sick fucks like this.
