A gymnastics coach from Modesto was arraigned in Santa Clara County Superior Court this morning on molestation charges involving a 17-year-old girl. Sean Gilham faces one count of felony false imprisonment and a misdemeanor count of annoying or molesting a child, according to district attorney spokeswoman Amy Cornell. The charges stem from a June 24 gymnastics competition held in San Jose. Gilham is accused of following the teenager, a gymnast from Modesto, into her hotel room. He allegedly blocked the girl from leaving the room and molested her, according to police. Investigators believe the victim suffered several similar encounters at Gilham’s gym in Modesto in the past year. The investigation suggests others may have been molested at the gym. Gilham will return to court Nov. 13 to enter a plea.
