Former FGHS coach pleads not guilty to sex charges
Dylan T. Sullivan, a former Forest Grove High School boys' basketball coach and a 2007 FGHS alum, pleaded not guilty Sept. 6 to seven sex-related felony charges in Deschutes County.
Charges include two counts of luring a minor; one count of online sexual corruption of a child in the second degree; one count of sexual abuse in the third degree; and three counts of attempted use of a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct.
Sullivan, 29, was indicted July 18 by a Deschutes County grand jury on the charges, which stem from alleged incidents in 2013 while he worked as a teacher and assistant coach in central Oregon's Bend-LaPine School District.
The incidents involved two then-minor females who were students at La Pine High School.
He is being represented by Portland defense attorney Scott Upham, a former Washington County district attorney.
According to a Deschutes County Circuit Court official, a trial has been set for April 18, 2018.
Sullivan currently teaches and coaches basketball at Lakeview High School in southern Oregon's Lake County School District. He is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the case.
