Nikolaos Philippoussis Held on $9.2 Million Bail on Sexual Molestation Charges

 Nikolaos “Nick” Philippoussis arrest

Nikolaos “Nick” Philippoussis arrested on child molestation charges and held on $9.2 million bail.

VISTA, California (July 28, 2017) — Nikolaos “Nick” Philippoussis is being held on $9.2 million bail after being arrested for the alleged child molestation of two 9-year-old girls who took tennis lessons from the coach over a one-year period.

Philippoussis, 68, of Mira Mesa, who is the father of retired tennis star Mark Philippoussis, plead not guilty at a Vista Superior Court hearing to two counts of sex acts with a child under 10 years old as well as about a dozen counts of lewd and lascivious behavior with a child under 14 years old. He faces 210 years in jail if convicted of all counts against him.

The District Attorney has filed charges against the tennis coach accusing him of molesting the two girls at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club tennis courts, his own home and his car. The abuse was considered to be substantial and invasive and took place between June 2016 and June 2017.

Philippoussis, who is a citizen of Australia, also coached his son who  was twice a Grand Slam finalist and once ranked eighth in the world as a tennis player. The younger Philippoussis resides in North County.

The bail was raised from the standard $2.5 million to $9.2 million and if Philippoussis posts bail he must surrender his passport.

A routine court hearing is scheduled for August 31 and a preliminary hearing will be held on October 5.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
