Cobb coach convicted of child sex abuse facing extradition to GA

A former Life University wrestling coach who pleaded guilty to child sex abuse in Pennsylvania now faces extradition to Georgia on similar charges.

Ron Gorman was indicted by a Cobb grand jury Thursday on two counts of aggravated child molestation. 

The charges stem from his abuse of a boy from Pennsylvania at his home in Cobb. 

Gorman has already been convicted and sentenced to 40 years in Pennsylvania, where prosecutors identified 11 victims and a pattern of abuse going back decades.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported in February how Gorman continued his career as a celebrated youth wrestling coach even after two Cobb mothers reported him to local authorities and Pope High School, where he was a volunteer with the wrestling program.
