    MONUMENT — A former high school basketball coach faces 39 charges for allegedly hitting male students in the groin, showing them pornography and pouring water on his players then driving them to games in the winter with the windows rolled down.

    Gregory Lynn Burr, 28, face charges ranging from sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust to child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, according to court documents reviewed by The Colorado Springs Gazette. One of the students claims to have had scrotal surgery because of Burr’s alleged assault.

    A student in documents said Burr would ask them, "What is the capital of Thailand?" When they would answer "Bangkok," he would hit them in the groin.

    The incidents allegedly took place from September 2005 to March 2006 at The Monument Academy.

    Burr’s phone number in Colorado Springs was not listed. Burr attorney Phil Dubois told The Gazette Monday that the charges are unwarranted, adding, "Mr. Burr is not a sex offender or anything close to it."

    Burr, who was arrested, posted $10,000 bail on Dec. 14, court records show.

    Burr is no longer is employed at the charter school, which is part of the Lewis-Palmer School District 38, said Ted Belteau, the district’s executive director of personnel and student services.

    Burr’s wife, Sharalee, was athletic director, coach of the girl’s basketball team last season and a teacher at the school told the newspaper that she was fired.

    In arrest records, some of the victims portrayed the incidents as Burr’s misguided attempts at humor but said they kept quite for fear of getting kicked off the team. One student estimated some of the players were hit in the groin 30-40 times.

    Another said the blows occurred at every practice, with the coach hitting them with his hand, basketballs and tennis balls.

    On one occasion, Burr asked a player to get out of his vehicle naked and run around the rest stop on Interstate 25 between Monument and Castle Rock.

    Another time, Burr invited some of the boys from the team to spend the night at his house. Two players said Burr logged onto the Internet and showed them pornography.

    We used to play that game in high school. People caught on pretty quickly though.

    Do you want a Hertz Doughnut?

    How about a nice Hawaiian Punch?

    What was the name of the family on Beverly Hillbillies?
    etc. etc.

    After junior high that humor fades but this was a very immature 28 year old who could not handle responsibility and got himself and his wife fired.

    Plus he is facing prison on 39 counts of sexual assault on a minor. They do not like child molesters in prison. Then there is the lawsuit from the kid who needed scrotal surgery.
