CLEVELAND — Daniel Gonsor, a part-time wrestling coach at St. Edwards High School who also works as a Cleveland firefighter, pleaded not guilty to multiple counts of rape and a slew of other charges at his arraignment Friday.
According to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office, Gonsor, 30, is charged with the following:
- 1 count of Rape
- 2 counts of Attempted Rape
- 2 counts of Sexual Battery
- 2 counts of Felonious Assault
- 2 counts of Endangering Children
- 2 counts of Corrupting Another With Drugs
- 9 counts of Gross Sexual Imposition
Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas records state that Gonsor was released after posting a $10,000 bond. He was also ordered to surrender his conceal-carry permit and any firearms he owns.
The charges stem from allegations that Gonsor sexually assaulted two members of the school's wrestling team between June 2015 and July 2019.
A Cleveland police spokesperson said on Friday that Gonsor has been suspended without pay from his job as a firefighter until his case is adjudicated.
Gonsor is scheduled to appear at the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas on Feb. 19 for a pre-trial hearing.
