KENNEBUNK (AP) — Law enforcement officials say a gymnastics coach has been charged with sexual abuse of a minor after being caught inside a darkened gym with a 14-year-old girl.

Prosecutors say 43-year-old Jeremy Link was seen with his pants around his ankles by the girl’s father.

Link taught ninja classes at Elite All-Stars of Maine and at another gymnastics facility.

He reportedly joined the Elite All-Stars staff a year ago and passed a background check during the hiring process.

Authorities have not said where the alleged assault took place.

Link’s bail has been set at $15,000 cash or a $100,000 bond.
