HASTING, MI (WTVB) - Barring any more delays, the trial of a former major league baseball player charged with molesting high school girls will begin today in Barry County. 44-year old Chad Curtis, who played for the Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees and 5 other teams in a 10 year career, had volunteered to be a trainer at Lakewood Schools, and had been chosen to become Head Football Coach. One female student athlete came forward saying she had been touched inappropriately by Curtis at the athletic facility. Then another girl came forward. He faces half a dozen charges.
Curtis’s attorney has already filed several appeals challenging pre-trial rulings in the case, and all were denied, and the case ordered to trial.
