    Moderators- thank you for removing offending post. Can you remove Iceymom from posting here as well?

    Regardless of what the truth is, making a statement like this is just disgusting.

    This is the typical mud-throwing, 'blaming the victim' sexist discourse.

    Sexual abuse is sexual abuse. It doesn't matter all how sexually active the victim was or wasn't.

    Is is typical to deny bail in cases involving minors or extradition? Because the civil suit was filed a while ago so he knew this investigation was brewing, yet he was at his home, I presume still teaching in MD. Seems like he had plenty of time to flee, but didn't. Did he go to Lake Placid ice dance comp this summer?

    Anyway, if they have the phones, they should be able to figure out where the texts came from.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I was wondering the same thing Rob, but decided it must be due to the impending extradition.

    It is odd that almost an entire year separates the alleged victim's complaint to police and the arrest. When you think about her having to go to the rink every day after the complaint and face not only him but rabid skate moms like iceymom, it's no wonder she quit the sport. The civil case is making a bit more sense.

    Eta: I just realized that they're suing the rink as well, hence all of the skating mom comments letting us know that the alleged victim is in "fact" a lying skank.

    Great point. Maybe the alleged victim was trying to help police build a case, IF -- repeat, IF -- this was a recurring pattern of behavior by the alleged perpetrator? I guess that details will come out in time.

    FOX published this article, with a few more details:
    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/09/06...-abusing-teen/


    The suit, filed in July in Prince George's County, Maryland, by the girl's father, also alleges Sretenski sent more than 500 text messages, including "I go crazy when I look at you" and "I love you" and urged her to delete them.

    The girl, identified in court papers as an "elite, nationally acclaimed skater," quit the sport because of what happened and suffered severe emotional distress

    I wonder how the girl's parents arrived at the $5 million in damage value?

    it is the maximum coverage on the PSA liability insurance

    Titled "Figure skating couch arrested"... Just such a sad situation regardless how the case ends.

    Is that somebody's short dance this year? Please let it be the Greek team.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    Considering the charges, I suspect a figure skating couch is something used in the kiss & cry.

    Tatiana Tarasova has given a Russian radio interview defending Sretenski's character: http://www.radiovesti.ru/articles/2012-09-06/fm/65324

    These sort of situations are always very delicate. Let's not point the finger against Sretensky or the alleged victim. That is the easiest thing to do. Let the judicial system do it's work and hope that truth will prevail.

    No, but it would be a great open for a Simpson's episode.

    This thread makes me regret joining FSU.

    I can't believe the willingness to defend a possible child molester. I can't believe there are people dragging out a plot point from a TV show to defend him. Accusing the victim of greed for filing a civil case? Really? The benefit of doubt should always go to the underaged victim. Always.

    TAT'S comments are cringeworthy.

    Really? I thought most people in this thread were advocating the "innocent until proven guilty" mindset, towards both the accused and the alleged victim. I thought most people were finding it cringeworthy that someone would publically "out" the alleged victim by gender, name, situation, and slander that person here. Perhaps I'm biased, but I think considering the insidious nature of what this thread could, and may still become, it's been mostly compassionate and even-minded, with one notable exception.

    I agree. Lots of respectable and respected folks can commit horrible acts. TAT and Sretenski would be better served by TAT keeping her mouth shut. TAT only calls attention to the alleged incident, which can't be helping Sretenski. If TAT is wrong, it shows her lack of judgment (already does, IMO, by speaking out). If TAT is right, what good comes of it? "See, I told you so?"
