Former big leaguer Chad Curtis was convicted of criminal sexual back in August after he inappropriately touched two teenage girls at a Michigan high school where he was a volunteer strength trainer. He was sentenced today and he now faces 7-to-15 years in prison. That is the maximum sentence under the law.

Good riddance.

    What an awful, awful man.

      Not defending him in any way here, but there was never a forced assault here. According to the information used against him, he kissed and touched the breast of one 16 year old girl and touched the butts of the other 2. Does he deserve punishment, absolutely, but doesnt 7-15 years for that when it wasnt a forced assault but just a sexual misconduct with minors seem harsh? I mean 16 is the age of consent in a number of states. Just posing a counter argument, hes still a dirtbag.

    Good. Hope he meets some nice gentlemen while in jail who can let him know what inappropriate touching really feels like. Perhaps after he won’t feel so free to engage in it with the unwilling and underage.

      My father was a cop and corrections officer for more than 30 years. He will be “turned out” within days of being placed in the general population. Often, my dad used to say, the inmates in general population were more well-informed about their fellow inmates than were the guards. Chad is in for a very long prison term, and not just in years.

    If only he’d have moved to MOntana…he could have gotten a slap on the wrist and nothing more. This teacher there got 30 days for rape.

    I assure you that 7-15 cannot be a “maximum sentence” since a maximum, by definition, is a single value. The quoted sentence consists of a numerical range which represents an infinite number of values within said range, hence cannot be a maximum.

      Jim Gray must be happy.

        Wow, I either never saw that video or just forgot about it, but nice to see people giving it to Jim Gray. That guy is scum.
        Too bad the guy giving it to him was apparently a whole different kind of scum as well…

      It means he was sentenced to the 15 year max but is eligible for parole in 7. So you’re assurance is worth ass.

      Thanks, Zippy. How about you stick to bathing and waxing your Star Wars figurines.

    He’s been sentenced, so now he can appeal and receive bail in the meantime. Might be a good, long while before he starts serving any part of a sentence.

      Yes, he’s going to be out on bail after being convicted of a serious felony and being staring at a very lengthy prison sentence. Show me a judge that’s going to let that happen.

      • tfbuckfutter - Oct 3, 2013 at 7:54 PM

        I’m guessing you didn’t see the link above about the judge who sentenced a teacher to 30 days in jail for statutory rape because the 14 or 15 year old girl “appeared older (even though the guy was HER teacher)”?

        The girl who, by the way, committed suicide before the trial.

    • dglavin96 - Oct 9, 2013 at 9:27 PM

      Here’s already in prison. You can look him up on the Michigan Dept. of Corrections website. His earliest release date is 9/13/2020.

      • dglavin96 - Oct 9, 2013 at 9:28 PM

        I meant “He’s”

  6. mybrunoblog - Oct 3, 2013 at 5:09 PM

    Guess he’s not going to make that 98 Yankees reunion. Rot in jail pervert..

    Is there a tape of this? I’d like to see the evidence myself before commenting.

  8. tfbuckfutter - Oct 3, 2013 at 6:35 PM

    This is religious persecution.

    I am positive it says somewhere in the bible that what he did was perfectly fine.

    When we will stop trampling the religious freedoms of people in this country?

  9. earpaniac - Oct 3, 2013 at 7:56 PM

    I’m not a bible thumper by any means, but pointing out because he supposedly was a Christian(not apparently a good one) and he committed a crime is no different than someone telling a non religious person he commuted a crime because he wasn’t. Both ideas are flat out stupid

    • tfbuckfutter - Oct 3, 2013 at 8:45 PM

      That’s a fair point.

      Can you pass that message along to the ones that ARE bible thumpers next time a Middle-Easterner commits a crime?

  10. condeclar - Oct 3, 2013 at 9:19 PM

    7 years for touching????

    People murder people and get less time than that!!

    This is absolutely crazy!

  11. giengmil - Oct 3, 2013 at 11:49 PM

    Ah yes, another in a long line of self righteous overtly religious hypocrites. Warms my heart.

    “Former big leaguer Chad Curtis was convicted of criminal sexual back in August”
