Former students sue ex-Pomona coaches over sexual abuse

Former cheerleaders and student athletes from Pomona High School are suing four former coaches alleging they sexually abused them. The three women, who attended the school in the 1990s, say the coaches groomed, assaulted and harassed students. They also say school administrators who were aware of the situation did nothing to stop it.

This is the fifth lawsuit filed against Pomona High School’s former coaching staff since 2020, increasing the total number of accusers to eight, according to the Los Angeles Times

The four male coaches named in Tuesday’s lawsuit include the current Mt. San Antonio College women’s basketball coach.
