Pamona High Coaches Accused of Grooming & Sexual Abuse

8 former cheerleaders & student-athletes suing the Pomona Unified School District, Pomona High School, and former coaches allege lurid details of:

  • How the men took them into their confidence, spent time with them, and shared personal stories;
  • How the men would openly flirt and engage in sexually charged talk with them;
  • Catcalling directed at minors, with comments made about girls’ bodies and their development;
  • Oral copulation, digital penetration, and penetrative sexual intercourse.

Allegations of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Former Pomona High School Coaches

Three female Pomona High alumni are suing four former male coaches—including the current women’s basketball coach at Mt. San Antonio College—alleging that the men sexually abused them when they were students at the school in the 1990s.

The lawsuit claims that the students—who were members of sports or cheerleading teams at the time of the abuse—were groomed, groped, assaulted, and harassed by the men, with contact sometimes continuing for years after the students left school.

The lawsuit also alleges that some Pomona Unified coaches and administrators knew about the “grooming behavior and sexual abuse” and did nothing.

All men charged in the suit were at Pomona High at the time and included:

  • Coach Brian Crichlow, who led the program for 13 seasons and now heads women’s basketball at Mt. San Antonio College;
  • Coach Herman Hopson;
  • Coach Derick Pugh; and,
  • Former Pomona Ganesha High women’s basketball coach Vincent Spirlin.

Further Details About the Pomona High Sexual Abuse Allegations

According to Natalie Weatherford, partner at the Manhattan Beach-based law firm Taylor & Ring and lead attorney representing the Jane Does: “Pomona High School had a prolific problem with childhood sexual abuse in the mid-to-late ’90s and early 2000s.”

In the lawsuit filed by Weatherford, she explains that “PUSD administrators and personnel witnessed” close contact between Jane Doe Nos. 5 and 6 with Crichlow, Hopson, and Pugh and “failed to do anything.”

There are also accusations of:

  • Underage drinking condoned by coaches;
  • Sexual relationships between coaches and players on campus;
  • Sexual exchanges between coaches and players on athletic trips;
  • Girls visiting coaches in the boys’ locker rooms and coaches’ offices; and,
  • Coaches giving girls alcohol and marijuana while on campus.

“For the women, this is about holding the school accountable, holding the coaches accountable,” Weatherford said, “and to be compensated for this trauma.”

Eligible victims are encouraged to request a free, private case evaluation by our experienced legal staff with the potential for compensation and justice.
