An innocent 9-year-old girl had attended basketball practice after school in New York when her coach unexpectedly asked her to stay behind. Unfortunately, what he needed her assistance with has rightfully resulted in him losing his job after the terrified young girl told her mom why he had her stay after practice.
The unidentified 9-year-old girl was playing basketball with other kids at The IDEAL School of Manhattan when practice came to an end. However, before she could leave, the basketball coach, identified as 22-year-old Channing Parker, stepped in and asked the young girl to stay behind for a few extra moments. After luring the child into a bathroom, the disgusting coach then forced her to perform oral sex on him.
The young girl immediately went home and told her mother what Parker had forced her to do, and the distraught parent immediately alerted the police. After the girl was examined at a local hospital, Parker was arrested and charged with “sexual assault, criminal sex act, and sex abuse,” according to Inside Edition.
However, that’s not all that the sick coach got for his lewd act with a child. A spokesman for The IDEAL School explained that Parker is an employee of an outside provider, Kids Creative, for after-school services. Kid’s Creative has announced that they have terminated Parker.
“Kids Creative is deeply troubled by the recent allegation against one of our employees at The IDEAL School of Manhattan,” the agency said, according to NBC New York. “Kids Creative has terminated the employee for violating its rules and procedures and we are cooperating fully with law enforcement. We will continue to support The IDEAL School of Manhattan and its community throughout the criminal investigation. The health and safety of our students is our top priority.”
It’s truly disgusting to think that the people who parents trust with their child’s safety are the same people who often abuse their position. There is no excuse for what this man forced an innocent young girl to do, and as a result, he’s rightfully lost everything. If he thinks that losing his freedom is the worst of what’s about to come for him – he has no idea what his fellow inmates will do when they hear about what he’s done, and no one is going to have any sympathy for him when that happens.
