(CNS): The RCIPS has begun extradition proceedings to bring a sports coach back to the Cayman Islands to face charges regarding allegations of indecent assault with at least one of the teenage girls he coached when he was in Cayman, according to documents filed in a Florida court. The 37-year-old man, who lived in Bodden Town, is facing two charges of indecent assault, one charge of gross indecency and one charge of misuse of the ICTA network.

The coach, who is described in the documents as a US citizen, left the Cayman Islands in February after messages he sent to the girl were found on her phone. He was living in the Miami area when he was arrested by US law enforcement agencies. The arrest warrant was issued locally in June.

“A provisional request for extradition has been submitted to the US and the process is underway with respect to this,” the RCIPS stated Tuesday.

The coach ran a local track club when he was here in Cayman. He allegedly assaulted the teenage girl when he was dropping her home and used her place on the track team to manipulate her compliance and silence.

However, the girl’s parents found the text messages on her phone and they reported the coach to the police. The parents claim he had admitted his crime to them and apologized but he left the islands before the police were able to arrest him.

CNS is not naming the coach to avoid the risk of identifying the teenager.
