A former assistant Mt. San Antonio College track coach accused of sexually
harassing seven female students denied the allegations on Tuesday, saying his
accusers are out for revenge and money.
A lawsuit filed by the women on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court claims
that former assistant track coach Carlos Moore sexually harassed them for more
than a year, touched them inappropriately, held them against their will and
retaliated against them for refusing his advances.
Detectives from the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Walnut station investigated
the allegations, but they were “never substantiated,” Sgt. Mario Estrada said
The suit also faults Mt. SAC, its athletic director, the two head coaches of
the track team and an assistant coach for not preventing the alleged behavior.
The suit seeks unspecified damages.
