According to the Cobb warrant, Gorman invited the Pennsylvania boy to his home for a massage and “then would transition to giving the victim oral sex.” The warrant said Gorman also requested oral sex from the victim.
Allegations against Gorman surfaced in February after a Cobb County mother found other potential victims on social media. She said she found messages between her son and Gorman, then a volunteer wrestling coach at Pope High School, in 2011.
The mother, whose son is not a part of either case, wanted her identity concealed in an interview Thursday with Channel 2 Action News.
She was relieved Cobb County authorities issued new charges against Gorman, but wished it would have happened sooner.
“It’s going to open up conversations with the local community to get people talking about what may have happened,” she said, “so that we can bring justice or closure to those that may have been affected.”
In 2015, Cherokee County officials said they received a complaint that Gorman solicited a child under the age of 16. Lt. Jay Baker said investigators were aware of the allegations in Pennsylvania and Cobb County at the time, but that there likely wasn’t enough physical evidence.
Such could be the case in Gorman’s Pennsylvania trial. Riegel said there hasn’t been forensic evidence that gives credibility to the claims.
No trial has been set for Gorman, who is expected to be extradited back to Cobb County following any court proceedings in Pennsylvania.
One mom made it her mission to bring ex-coach Ron Gorman to justice and discovered he's facing more than 500 counts involving two victims in Pennsylvania.
