The Cayman Islands Athletics Association remains quiet after a former track and field club coach is arrested in Miami and faces charges of indecent assault of a minor in the Cayman Islands.
Cayman 27 policy prohibits the use in our reporting of any names, details or information that could identify the victim.
An e-mail sent this afternoon to CIAA President Cydonie Mothersill seeking comment on the matter was not answered.
According to the criminal complaint, the coach made sexual advances on the 14-year-old girl while giving her rides home from practice, including touching her vagina and asking her to touch his penis.
The criminal complaint also alleges the athlete’s mother found phone messages from the coach asking the girl to send him explicit photographs and threatening expulsion from the team if the athlete did not. The document further alleges the girl’s mother contacted police, who tried to track down the man but found he had fled to the United States.
Local police have started the extradition process.
When the incident was first reported earlier this year, then-CIAA President Dr. Dalton Watler said the Association planned changes for the way it vets coaches. Questions on whether that has happened also went unanswered by Mothersill.
