Youth Soccer League Sued Over Molester Coach

J&W Senior Partner quoted in today’s article about background checks for coaches and volunteers in youth sports.

“The parents of a girl who was raped by her youth soccer coach when she was 13 are suing the local soccer league and its national umbrella organization for negligence in failing to adequately vet the coach before allowing him access to children.

The lawsuit, filed in Santa Clara County, California, names U.S. Youth Soccer and the California Youth Soccer Association-North, claiming that if they had a policy of conducting background checks they would have discovered that coach Emanuele Fabrizio had a prior domestic violence conviction.”
