Personal Trainer Accused of Groping Teen Client at Ashburn Elite Track Club

A Loudoun County physical trainer was arrested last Friday, December 13, for allegedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl he was training. 54-year-old Arnold D. Thomas has been charged with taking indecent liberties with a child, aggravated sexual battery, and abduction.

According to the police, Thomas sexually assaulted the victim while the two were alone together at the Ashburn Elite Track Club on December 7. Thomas is accused of groping the teenage girl several times. The allegations were reported to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office on December 9.

Thomas is being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond.

The Loudoun County Special Victims Unit is still investigating this case to determine if Arnold had inappropriate contact with other children and teenagers while working as a trainer.

Anyone with information related to this case is asked to contact Sgt. Wayne Promisel at 703-777-1021.

Legal Options for Personal Trainer Sex Abuse Victims

As a former sex crimes prosecutor and current school sex abuse victims lawyer, Kevin Biniazin has helped sex abuse victims find justice in both criminal and civil courts. Kevin has offered to add some thoughts on the legal rights of those who have been sexually assaulted by personal trainers and others in the athletics field:

Personal trainers, coaches, and other professionals working in athletics have a moral and legal obligation to treat their clients with respect. But sadly, there have been reported cases of personal trainers sexually assaulting clients who trusted them. When this happens, it’s important that the client is aware of their legal rights.

In some cases, victims of personal trainer sexual assault may have grounds for a lawsuit against the personal trainer or a negligent third party. For example, a gym could be held liable in a lawsuit if others had complained about inappropriate behavior by a personal trainer but the gym failed to address or report those complaints.
