DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A former Kentucky high school football coach has been accused of committing sex crimes against a child while he was leading the team in the early 1980s.
News outlets cite police and court records in Monday reports as saying 69-year-old Thomas Duffy was indicted on four sodomy charges last week by a grand jury in Boyle County.
Danville police Assistant Chief Glenn Doan says the crimes allegedly happened in 1982 and 1983 and involved a child younger than 16. Police did not say if the victim was a Danville High student.
Duffy was Danville High School’s football coach from 1980 to 1987 and won two state championships. Duffy coached here in Henderson County from 1994 to 2003.
Duffy was arrested and released on bond; it’s unclear if he has a lawyer. Kentucky imposes no time limit on prosecuting felonies.
