    OR - Jeremy Waldridge for child pornography, Aloha, 2011

    I guess this man really set himself up. Who could ask for more access? Gymnastics and cheerleading are two sports which require a hands on approach. And overnight trips, too.

    Coach In Child Porn Case Appears In Court
    Jeremy Waldridge Says Community Is Supporting Him


    "HILLSBORO, Ore. -- A gymnastics coach arrested in connection with child pornography made his first court appearance Tuesday morning. Jeremy Waldridge was arraigned Tuesday in Washington County Court on six counts of encouraging child sex abuse. Investigators say they found child porn downloaded on his computer.

    Waldridge lives in Aloha and coaches gymnastics and cheerleading for children at Top Notch Trampoline, Tumbling and Cheerleading in Hillsboro. He’s also done demonstrations in local schools...."

    and

    "....Waldridge says he believes the community is standing behind him...."

    Sure glad that Jeremy believes that. The Mohler brothers believed that too and they're still sitting in jail, 15 months after arrest. Thankfully, this judge raised the bail so Jeremy is not out "tumbling" right now.



    And an earlier article from Feb. 9th:

    http://www.kptv.com/news/26812451/detail.html

    "...Detectives say the porn was graphic in nature and they became extremely concerned when they found that Waldridge not only works with children, but has visited local grade schools to put on demonstrations...."


    more at link--including this comment:

    "....He would NEVER touch a child he works with. I have the utmost respect for him as a coach..."


    If that's true, that puts an awful lot of children in the Portland metroplex in extreme danger. I feel both anger and sorrow for those whose bubbles are burst when men and women they know and trust are arrested for this crime and who jump to their defense. Did this woman honestly believe that pedophiles wear t-shirts proclaiming their interests? Maybe she'll join us and weigh in. But like so many who have, they seem to not come back after there's been a conviction.

    Well, I guess we'll have to see if some of Coach Waldridge's supporters change their tune:

    Aloha [OR] gymnastics coach admits to child porn charges
    July 20, 2011

    "An Aloha gymnastics coach accused earlier this year of possessing child pornography from the Internet has been convicted and sentenced..."

    and

    "...On Feb. 9, detectives from the Interagency Child Exploitation Prevention Team served a search warrant at the home of Jeremy Brandon Waldridge, 33, in the 21000 block of Southwest Regal Court. Waldridge was subsequently arrested on multiple charges. An investigation had begun when detectives learned Waldridge was reportedly downloading child pornography online..."

    and

    "...At the time, Waldridge ran Top Notch Trampoline, Tumbling and Cheerleading, which is a gymnastics company for children and teens..."

    and

    "...On June 10, Waldridge pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree encouraging child sex abuse. Waldridge was sentenced to five years probation...."

    and

    "...Waldridge also received the court's sex offender package, which means he must undergo counseling and treatment. Waldridge must provide a DNA sample and register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Waldridge is to have no contact with the victim or minor children, and cannot go to schools or parks or places where minor children congregate. He is not to view pornography and cannot have access to computers, smart phones, other electronic devices and the Internet, according to court records."

    I have to say I've never heard of the "court's sex offender package". We'll see how this goes.
