A figure skating coach (56) who forced himself upon his female student (13) in a particularly unpleasant crime, has been arrested, and offers some distinctly unconvincing statements in his defence.
We hear that the currently unemployed former top coach had the girl, and her mother and younger sister, staying with him in preparation for training on the morrow, something she had apparently done some ten times previously.
That time however, the coach decided to sneak into the unfortunate girl’s room in the early hours of the morning, whilst her family slept, to have his way with her in a particularly vicious crime, which apparently left her injured. Done with her, he threatened her “Don’t tell a soul – your skating career is finished if you do”.
Almost a month elapsed between his alleged crime and the conclusion of investigations with his arrest. On arrest, he offered the excuse “I was drunk, I don’t remember anything”, and, amazingly, “I was sleepy and mistook her for my wife”…
