SARNIA, Ont. — The trial of a former high-ranking gymnastics coach accused of sexual assault resumes in Sarnia, Ont., today.
Dave Brubaker has pleaded not guilty to sexual assault and invitation to sexual touching at his judge-alone trial.
The former head coach of the women’s national team is accused of sexually assaulting a young gymnast years ago.
At the beginning of the trial in October, a woman who is now in her 30s testified that Brubaker would kiss her on the lips to say hello and goodbye starting when she was 12 years old.
She also said he touched her inappropriately during sports massages.
Brubaker said he thought he was being a supportive coach and denied any sexual intent.
