Ex-Tennis Coach Faces New Charges in Child Sexual Abuse Case

A former tennis instructor who was indicted on attempted child sexual assault and child porn charges in February 2018 now faces additional charges after more victims have come forward to authorities.

26-year-old Terry Y. Kuo (aka Victor Lee) was indicted in 2018 after a 13-year-old tennis student reported him for sexual abuse. Last month, a grand jury in Monmouth County issued a 46-count indictment against Kuo. According to prosecutors, investigators discovered child pornography on Kuo's electronic devices and evidence of sexual abuse involving additional youth.

Kuo faces a wide range of serious charges, including:

  • 3 counts of first-degree kidnapping,
  • 2 counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault,
  • 1 count of second-degree attempted aggravated sexual assault,
  • 6 counts of second-degree sexual assault,
  • 2 counts of second-degree attempted sexual assault,
  • 4 counts of first-degree causing or permitting a child to engage in child pornography,
  • 4 counts of second-degree manufacturing child pornography,
  • 5 counts of third-degree possession of child pornography,
  • 2 counts of fourth-degree lewdness,
  • 3 counts of third-degree aggravated criminal sexual contact,
  • 1 count of fourth-degree stalking,
  • 3 counts of third-degree child endangerment,
  • 2 counts of third-degree obscenity, and
  • 1 count of fourth-degree conspiracy to tamper with physical¬†evidence.

These charges carry a maximum penalty of a life sentence with 25 years of parole ineligibility. Kuo remains incarcerated while awaiting trial. Anyone with additional information about Kuo has been asked to contact Marlboro police Detective Edward Ungrady at 732-536-0100 ext. 1099 or Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office Detective Stephen Borchard at 732-431-7160 ext 8649.

Justice for Child Sex Abuse Survivors and Their Families

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea is a former sex-crimes prosecutor who now represents sexual abuse survivors in civil trials and lawsuits. We've asked him to discuss the legal options available to those who have been sexually abused by youth sports coaches:

Sexual predators are often trusted members of their communities - working in our schools, religious organizations, youth sports leagues, and other fields that involve frequent contact with children. This is why the individuals who run these organizations must do all that they can to make sure their volunteers and employees are trustworthy people and that any complaints of sexual misconduct are immediately brought to law enforcement. But sometimes teachers, coaches, youth organization volunteers, and other trusted community members are able to commit heinous crimes partly due to third-party negligence.

For example, a youth sports organization might be considered negligent for failing to suspend an accused teacher and contact law enforcement after being notified about potential child sexual abuse. In cases that involve negligence, the victims and their families may have grounds to file a lawsuit.

If you or your child has been sexually abused by a youth sports coach or another trusted authority figure, your family has options for justice through the legal system. Consider speaking to an experienced sex abuse survivors attorney to learn more about how you can find the justice and support you deserve.
