Uniontown Fight Club Gym Trainer Accused of Sexually Assaulting 2 Teens

Pennsylvania State Police have arrested a Uniontown gym trainer for allegedly sexually assaulting two teen girls he was coaching. In the most recent arrest, 49-year-old William K. Bosley Jr. is accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl several times in 2010. He has been charged with eight counts each of statutory sexual assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a person younger than 16, unlawful sexual contact with a minor and corruption of minors, as well as seven counts of criminal use of a communication device.

The second alleged victim, who is now 23 years old, filed a police report on December 10. She told police that shortly after she joined the Uniontown Fight Club gym, Bosley began texting her in a sexual manner. According to the criminal complaint, within a month this progressed to sexual intercourse in Bosley’s car and at the fight club. The woman also told police that Bosley asked her for sexual favors in exchange for extra training or placing her on a list to fight.

According to state police, the woman came forward after Bosley was arrested on December 6 in a similar case. In that case, another woman told investigators that Bosley sexually assaulted her several times, beginning in 2013 when she was 14 years old and continuing for two years until she was 16.

Legal Recourse For Victims of Sexual Abuse by Coaches

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea is a former sex crimes prosecutor who now helps survivors of sexual assault find justice in civil lawsuits. Here are some thoughts from Brian on the legal options available to students sexual abused by a coach:

Sexual predators often place themselves in positions of trust and authority where they have frequent access to vulnerable victims. Teachers, coaches, religious leaders, and other trusted community members are often the perpetrators in horrific crimes of sexual abuse. When a coach sexually abuses a child they’re coaching, it’s crucial for the police to arrest the coach and for the victim to get all of the support they need. It’s also important to determine if a third party, such as the sports organization itself, was negligent in a way that allowed the abuse to occur.

For example, a youth sports organization might be considered liable for sexual abuse for failing to run a background check before hiring a new coach or failing to report allegations of sexual misconduct to law enforcement.

If you or your child has been sexually abused by a coach, the legal system can help you find justice. You can learn more about your family’s legal options by speaking to an experienced sexual abuse survivors attorney.
