A North Texas gymnastics coach has been arrested in Indiana on sexual abuse charges, USA Today reports. Skipper "Skip" Glenn Crawley was wanted on suspicion of sexually abusing 3 young girls at a Fort Worth gymnastics club, Sokol Gymnastics. He is facing extradition back to Texas on one charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child and two charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Former Sokol Gymnastics Coach Accused Of Child Sex Abuse

The accusations against Crawley surfaced in April 2018. He was banned from membership in USA Gymnastics shortly thereafter. Since his time at Sokol, Crawley appears to have been working as a trainer at a 24 Hour Fitness in North Richland Hills, Texas.

Gymnast On Balance Beam

Reports suggest that Crawley had at least 3 victims during his 1-year tenure at Sokol Gymnastics, a gymnastics club in Fort Worth. His victims allegedly ranged in age from 8 to 13.

Crawley Arrested As Fugitive In Indiana

Crawley was taken into custody by a team from the Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force just outside Indianapolis. It's unclear how long Crawley remained a fugitive from justice, but posts on his Facebook page show him to have been in Arlington, Texas as late as July 31, just one day prior to his arrest in Indiana.

Sokol Gymnastics has retained Russ Prince, a Florida-based attorney, as legal counsel. In statements to the Forth Worth Star-Telegram, Prince said the club believes all 3 of Crawley's alleged victims played on the same team. Prince says Sokol immediately forwarded the complaints against Crawley to the police and USA Gymnastics, the national governing body that controls Olympic-track gymnastics in America.
