Bridget Namiotka Sexual Abuse
Bridget Namiotka wrote Sunday on Facebook that John Coughlin sexually abused her for two years while they were pairs figure skating partners.
Namiotka wrote, “I’m sorry but john hurt at least 10 people including me. He sexually abused me for 2 years. Nobody innocent hangs themself.”
Namiotka teamed with Coughlin from 2004 to 2007, when she was between the ages of 14 and 17 and he was 18 to 21. They won three medals on the Junior Grand Prix series and finished ninth in the senior (Olympic) level at the 2007 United States Figure Skating Championships.
Namiotka added in three additional posts:
“Someone that’s innocent doesn’t hang himself. Think about the victims when you’re speaking up for what he did to at least 10 girls.”
“Think about all of the girls he hurt.
“Grooming happens. It happened to me and he hurt a lot of girls. Think about the victims.”
When asked to comment on Namiotka’s posts, Coughlin’s agent, Tara Modlin, said: : “It seems that you want me to comment on an unstable persons Facebook comment – I don’t really understand your question. … my suggestion is to call some of his other partners.”
Prior to his death in January, Coughlin called the allegations “unfounded.” Meanwhile, attorney John Manly, who represents Namiotka and two other women who have alleged that Coughlin sexually abused them, had the following to say in March: “My clients and I want to make this clear: John Coughlin used his position of trust and power and prominence in figure skating to sexually abuse multiple minors, three of whom I represent.”
