Is it OK if a Coach has sex with your child?

On Monday, April 7th a Conference Committee of 6 Maryland legislators will meet behind closed doors to decide the fate of your child.  The question before them is should there be criminal laws in place that provide penalties for a variety of Persons in Positions of Authority if they have sexual contact with your child?

At issue is the definition of a Person in Position of Authority.  

Under current Maryland law only full-time teachers are covered by this law. 

Parents, are you comfortable with current law? Are you comfortable knowing that if your child is in the custody of a coach, volunteer, part-time teacher or recreational program staff person the Person in charge of your child can engage in sexual contact with your child? 

Here's who to contact about this bill now.  Remember, you only have 24 hours to have your opinion heard by the legislators that will decide what happens to this bill.


  1. Nuts! One more and then we would have the magnificent seven.

  2. The seventh one would have been the late Charles Bronson.
