CA - Foothill HS Basketball Coach Arrested for Sexually Assaulting Student

The Foothill High School’s boys basketball coach arrested last week after being suspected of horrifically engaging in oral sex with a minor has been arraigned on Monday afternoon.

32-year-old Stephen Calton was arrested on felony charges on Thursday night following a probe that started in June this year.

A woman who studied in Foothill High School has come forward to file charges against Calton. The woman was only 17 years old two years ago when she had a relationship with Calton who participated in oral sex with her on several occasions.

There is still not much information available on the case filed against the basketball coach. The woman is now an adult. Her identity is not revealed to the public.

Calton appeared in court on Monday but did not enter a plea as he informed Sacramento Judge Patrick Marlette that he did not have a lawyer. The accused was given by the judge a week to get himself a legal counsel. Court session resumes on December 10.

Calton started coaching freshman and junior varsity basketball at Foothill in 2011. He took his time and was finally promoted as the school’s head coach for hoops in 2016.

Prior to his hiring, Calton managed to have his background checks cleared. He was, however, arrested while already being employed by Foothill in 2016. The case, though, did not involve students or school staff. He was arrested on vandalism and domestic charges and pleaded no contest on September 9, 2016. He received five years’ probation.

Since the basketball mentor is still under probation for past charges, he is now no longer eligible for bail because the charges now violate his probation.

Twin Rivers Unified School District spokesperson Zenobia Gerald said: “We are fully committed to taking the necessary steps to protect students and staff. The district takes any concerns and complaints regarding the conduct of all employees seriously and will not tolerate inappropriate or unprofessional behavior of any kind.”

Some liberal satanic judge will let this filth off the hook so he can rape some other child. Maybe he will rape the judge if the judge is a woman! Blacks belong in cages.

I think the above comment should NOT HAVE been posted. I am about as white as one can get according to my skin coloring. The Goldwater should NOT have posted that last sentence of that comment. Offends me greatly!

I wonder if John just likes to start wars! Take a good look at the 15 ped that were arrested. Four had as much white in them as black and the rest were white, except for the oriental person. One picture was shown. You, John, are trouble maker for sure.
