I could go for a little rassling with this one.
A visiting wrestling coach who was traveling through town with his team and staff is accused of providing alcohol to minors and sexual misconduct. David Murphy, 29, of Mokena, was charged with multiple counts of aggravated battery and criminal sexual abuse, according to the Yorkville Police Department. The incident took place between Dec. 11 and Dec. 12 at the Hampton Inn in Yorkville. According to Kendall County Now and the Daily Journal, Murphy turned himself in to police Friday. The charges involve five juveniles and an 18-year-old victim. All six were students and included four girls and two boys. “Murphy performed a series of acts on the defendants during the course of one evening and the next morning,” the state’s attorney’s office told Kendall County Now. Murphy is alleged to have made physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature, according to the report, and reportedly “pulled the victim’s pants back to expose her underwear, squeezed her buttocks and groped her breasts over her clothing,” Kendall County Now reports. Charges also claim Murphy, while in a hotel room, “squeezed (another) victim’s buttocks, kissed her on the forehead and pulled back her pants to expose her underwear,” according to the article.
