No charges filed against swim coach accused of abuse
PHOENIX (CBS5) -
The Maricopa County Attorney's Office says they don't have enough evidence to charge a former Arizona State University swim coach accused of abuse.
Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery announced on Wednesday that his office won't seek criminal charges against Greg John Winslow, 38, who was investigated by the ASU Police Department for allegedly kissing and fondling a teenage girl. The girl was a member of a club organization at an ASU swimming facility. She was not an ASU student and the club is not affiliated with ASU, according to Montgomery's office.
The police investigation recommended two counts of sexual abuse of a minor and the case was forwarded to the county attorney's office for review on Feb. 28, 2013.
"After a careful review of the information contained in the investigation, we determined that there was sufficient cause to seek an indictment in this matter," said Montgomery. "However, we were unable to meet the necessary burden of proof required to move forward with formal charges. Absent additional information which could support these or other allegations, we will not pursue this matter further."
Winslow was working for the University of Utah at the time of the allegations and he was suspended. The school did not renew his contract this month.
