The Indianapolis Star reported that Marion County court documents indicated “Sharp took inappropriate photographs and inappropriately touched a girl on many occasions while he was her gymnastics coach. The girl, who is now 14, told police that Sharp has been touching her inappropriately since she was 12 years old.” The incidents happened at Sharp’s gym as well as during an out-of-state trip that the victim and Sharp went on together as competitor and coach. Police reportedly found thousands of photos of children in sexually explicit poses on computer drives belonging to Sharp as well as in a safe in Sharp’s home and in a file cabinet at his gymnasium.
