Montgomery County Police has been investigating a third incident of sexual abuse involving soccer coach Juan Jose (J. J.) Aranguri. A third victim came forward after the first two reports of abuse had been publicized. In 2007 the female victim, then 13 years old, was using Aranguri as her personal trainer at the Fitness First Health Club in Bethesda.
Aranguri was arrested on October 9th in relation to this latest situation and held on $50,000 dollar bond.
At last count, Aranguri’s attorney is John McKenna of Greenbelt. One of his specialties is sex crimes.
4/29/09 update: The gazette reports that a September 28, 2009 trial date has been set. I assume it will be one trial for three alleged victims. The Gazette has compiled a nice chronology of events.
