EAST STROUDSBURG — State police hope to bring a former youth wrestling coach back to the Poconos by next week to face child sex charges.

Ron Gorman, 51, formerly of East Stroudsburg, was arrested in Georgia where he was currently living.

Court papers show he was the head of Stroudsburg Area Youth Wrestling until he moved in 2009.

Gorman is accused of multiple instances of sexual assault with a victim who is now 20 years old. The alleged assaults happened in Gorman’s home and at hotels in Stroudsburg and in other states when the victim was between 10 and 15 years old.

    This “poser” is a dirt bag ! Never wrestled in his life,then he’s a coach ? Gorman isn’t his birth name ! Nothing good about this “dirtbag” !

    School wrestling is just mounting your opponent into submission… maybe he was just practicing with the kid

      PA. BORDER PATROL…How about you do all of us in Monroe County a favor and stay on your side. We’ve all been hoping that a wall would be built to keep Jersey people and New York people alike out of here (Monroe County and PA altogether) because it’s nothing but trouble when you’re here i.e. arrogance, cockiness and ignorance especially when it comes to driving.

    There must be something in the water in PA. These stories are in the news every day. I don’t get it.
