Former major league outfielder Chad Curtis faces up to 15 years in prison after being found guilty on charges that he inappropriately touched teenage girls.
Curtis, 44, spent ten years in the major leagues and was a part of two World Series winning teams during his time with the New York Yankees.
A jury convicted Curtis of six counts of criminal sexual conduct. Prosecutors say he touched girls between the ages of 13 and 16 last year when he was a volunteer weight-room strength trainer at an area high school.
two 15-year-old students accused him of inappropriately touching their buttocks and a 16-year-old said he touched her private areas and fondled and kissed her breasts.
An incident involving one of the 15-year-old girl’s was in April 2012, while the others were earlier.
Curtis appeared in 1204 games for the Angels, Tigers., Dodgers, Yankees and Rangers and compiled a career line of .264/.349/.396 while hitting 101 career home runs and driving in 461 runs.
