Wyatt Davidson, is a former California assistant track and field coach at the high school level. According to the Daily Breeze, he is being suited for an alleged sexual assault of a student.

Davidson is charged with 14 charges, including sexual assault and battery, negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

There was allegedly a sexual relationship then between a 16-year-old girl and Davidson, while the two were at Torrance High School (Calif.). The alleged incidents took place between March 9 and April 28th, 2017.

Davidson pled no contest to the charges earlier this month.

“[The student] was inexperienced, innocent, confused and overpowered physically and emotionally by an older, experienced mature man who was also her mentor and authority figure who had been her coach for almost two years and who was manipulating her into satiating his inappropriate sexual attraction to minors,” the lawsuit alleges.

The lawsuit is seeking $5 million in damages. It also includes Davidson’s father, the district superintendent, and other school officials in the lawsuit.

“This is something that was wrong,” said attorney Thomas H. Schelly of El Segundo-based Lipeles Law Group, who is representing the plaintiffs in the case. “We’re talking about a minor having placed trust in a teacher in the school system.”

Davidson was sentenced to one day in county jail. He also received 36-months probation, according to Torrance Superior Court documents.

Child molestation and misdemeanor sexual battery charges were dismissed against Davidson.

He was released from his contract in May 2017. That was the same month that he was arrested in the suspicion of committed a crime.

Less than six months ago, the same school district settled a lawsuit against Thomas Snyder, a former wrestling coach, who was convicted of molesting 25 male students.
