Maple Grove track assistant charged with molesting 13-year-old student


A track assistant at Maple Grove Senior High School has been charged with molesting a 13-year-old student.

Todd J. McIntyre, 46, of Plymouth, was charged on Tuesday with one count of 2nd degree criminal sexual conduct in Hennepin County District Court.

According to the criminal complaint, McIntyre was working at the school in spring this year when he the alleged sexual assault took place. She reported it to police in August.

She said she had stayed behind after track practice to speak with her coach, only for McIntyre to then approach her as she left the stadium, at first grabbing the outside of her hands as she rubbed them to keep them warm.

He then pulled the girl to his body and "moved his hands to her waist" before proceeding to fondle her, the charges say.

He is then said to have threatened to assault the girl's friends if she told anybody about his actions.

The complaint says that police spoke with every family who had a girl on the junior high track team, and though nobody witnessed the assault, several "described inappropriate touching and behavior by the defendant that made them uncomfortable."

Osseo-Maple Grove School District spokesperson Barb Olson told the Star Tribune that McIntyre's tenure as a coach and a districtwide substitute teacher ended in May after just three months.

He was released from police custody pending a court hearing on Dec. 16, the newspaper notes.
