Prep coach indicted on charges of failing to report abuse
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) – A Tennessee high school basketball coach has been indicted on four counts of failing to report child sexual abuse of high school basketball players by teammates.
The Hamilton County district attorney’s office announced Wednesday that a grand jury indicted Ooltewah High School basketball coach Andre Montgomery this week.
Gatlinburg police have charged three Ooltewah players with the aggravated rape of one player. The Hamilton County district attorney’s office has said four players were “subjected to apparent sexual assault” at a Gatlinburg cabin in December.
Montgomery, assistant coach Karl Williams and athletic director Allard Nayadley were charged in January with failing to report child sexual abuse. Nayadley has agreed to a pretrial diversion program that includes 10 hours of community service and a class on mandatory reporting.
