Former USA Gymnastics coach accused of lewdness with a minor

2020-07-17

An ex-USA Gymnastics coach was arrested Friday on multiple charges of lewdness with a minor.

Terry Gray, 52, faces 14 felony counts for the alleged crimes, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

He coached gymnastics in the Neon Capital of the World between 2009 and 2015, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement Saturday.

Gray coached the USA Gymnastics women’s national team prior to the U.S. Center for SafeSport suspending him from the sport last October amid allegations he engaged in sexual misconduct with a minor.

The suspension, which lasts through Oct. 18, 2021, meant that Gray was “not permitted any contact with any USA Gymnastics-sanctioned event, member club, professional member or athlete involved with USA Gymnastics member clubs or events.”

Authorities are looking for anyone who was a victim of the former coach or knows about his alleged crimes, and requested such people contact the department’s Sexual Assault Section at 702-828-3421.

Those wishing to stay anonymous are urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
