Ex-MLB Player Curtis To Stand Trial In Sex Case

HASTINGS, Mich. (AP) — Former major league outfielder Chad Curtis has been ordered to stand trial on charges he touched two female students at a Michigan high school where he was a volunteer strength trainer in the school’s weight room.

After hearing testimony from the 15- and 16-year-old girls, Barry County District Judge Michael Schipper ruled Friday that Curtis is to be tried on five counts of criminal sexual conduct.

Schipper also told the 43-year-old Curtis he no longer is allowed to coach his 12-year-old son’s travel baseball team.

Defense lawyer David Dodge Sr. has said his client denies any criminal wrongdoing.

Between 1992 and 2001, Curtis played for the then-California Angels, Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians, New York Yankees and Texas Rangers. He won two World Series rings with the Yankees.
