Former major league outfielder Chad Curtis will stand trial in Michigan on five counts of criminal sexual conduct after appearing in court Friday.
After hearing testimony from two girls, ages 15 and 16, Barry County District Judge Michael Schipper ruled Friday that Curtis is to be tried. He also told Curtis that he’s no longer allowed to coach his 12-year-old son’s travel baseball team.
As reported earlier, Curtis is facing two counts in the second degree, one in the third degree and two in the fourth degree. The second- and third-degree charges are punishable by up to 15 years of imprisonment. The fourth-degree charges carry punishments of up to two years of imprisonment and $500 fines.
Curtis has denied any wrongdoing. No courtdate has been set.
