Saskatoon fastball coach Ricky Davis pleads not responsible to sexual assault
A former coach of the Saskatoon Hustlers fastball team has pleaded not guilty of sexual assault.
Ricky Davis, 56, filed the lawsuit in Saskatoon Provincial Court on Wednesday. He is accused of having sexually abused a minor several times between February 2012 and December 2017.
The child was between five and nine years old, according to the Saskatoon Police Service. A press release states that the trainer and the child knew each other.
Police received a report in January and arrested Davis on April 7th. Investigators fear that there could be more victims in the community.
Davis was an executive member of the Saskatoon Minor Softball League and commissioner of Hustler’s fastpitch zone. As a result of the indictment, he was suspended from his roles and responsibilities in the league.
