Normandie Burgos, Tennis Coach Arrested Sexual Assaulting Students in Richmond
A Richmond-area tennis coach, who is also founder of the Burgos Tennis Foundation in Sausalito, was arrested on sexual assault charges after it was discovered he had allegedly sexually assaulted a 16-year-old boy and possibly many others over the years.
Normandie Burgos was arrested Monday while on a tennis court and is being held on $1.5 million bail. He is under investigation by the Richmond Police Department’s Domestic and Sexual Violence Unit.
Police were tipped off back in February about Burgos after they learned about the alleged sexual assault on a boy who he was privately coaching at his Richmond residence. The teen was 14 years old when the sexual assaults reportedly began and it went on until he was 16 years old. The teenager reported the abuse to his mother who contacted police.
Burgos has had previous cases involving five other juvenile victims, one in Richmond and four in Mill Valley. It was back in 2008 when Burgos was working for Tamalpais High School that he was accused by three former students. His case ended up in a hung jury back in 2008, but now Richmond police say the Marin County District Attorney is reopening the 2008 case.
Police suspect there could be more victims who were assaulted by Burgos. Victims or their parents are asked to call Richmond police at (510) 620-6668.
