Gymnastics coach accused of child molestation

WASHINGTON, Mo. - The Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney's Office charged a Washington man for inappropriately touching a gymnast at a local business.

The suspect, David Schneider, was a parent volunteer at Kids in Motion, a local gymnastics center. According to a spokesperson for the Washington Police Department, investigators identified multiple victims.

The incidents were said to have occurred between the fall of 2011 and the fall of 2014. The victims were 7 or 8 years old.

Schneider was charged with three counts of child molestation. He remains jailed on a $100,000 cash-only bond.

Investigators said they would not be surprised if there were more victims and charges to follow because Schneider also worked as a swim coach in Union and at the Washington YMCA.
