Gymnastics Coach Gets Probation for Imposition

Derek Waskowski, 30, of Stow, was sentenced to five years probation Wednesday, after pleading guilty to inappropriate contact with a 10-year-old girl while he was a gymnastics instructor.

The incident happened back in 2015 when Waskowski worked for Little Leapers in Hudson. A Hudson Police report details the contact made on February 4, 2015. 

Waskowski pleaded guilty to one 3rd-degree-felony count of gross sexual imposition on August 7th. He was originally charged with three counts of imposition, but the other two charges were dropped. Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Mary Margaret Rowlands suspended a 42-month jail sentence; he was facing a maximum five years in jail.
