Accused child molesters are entitled to the presumption of innocence in criminal court. They aren’t entitled to the presumption of innocence when applying to be youth sports coaches.
So I was shocked when I read the July 25 article, Youth baseball coach is accused — again — of child molestation, that reported that the Cooper City Optimist Club allowed David Solomon to be a coach despite his multiple previous arrests. Apparently, the club's policy is to screen out only those who have been convicted of a crime. That is an idiotic policy.
