KAUFMAN COUNTY, Texas — Edward Mann is a hometown guy. He was a youth league baseball coach, former school volunteer, volunteer fire chief, and the husband of a school board member.
“He was just kind of a go-to guy if the community needed something done,” Kaufman County Judge Bruce Wood, a former Terrell school superintendent, said.
That’s when the district got a complaint about him from a 17-year-old student’s guardian.
The guardian told district officials about a text conversation with Mann that made the student feel uncomfortable.
He got out of jail on bond, but was re-arrested Friday after another 20-year-old man told police he was 14 when Mann touched him after high school baseball practice.
At the time, Mann had been acting as a self-appointed athletic trainer.was the penultimate episode of the ill-fated Channel 4 reality show which put 23 volunteers into a basic camp in the Scottish Highlands and left them to build a community.The series was cancelled after a few episodes last year, but has been back on our screens all this week to see how the contestants ended up.But the Y gives him support and community, and he says that’s something than can benefit people of all ages.TODAY’s Sheinelle Jones sat down with him and with Y spokesperson Jane Lynch.“It’s something that nobody expected.” The sexual abuse allegations against Mann came to light earlier this month when a 20-year-old college student reported the abuse to his mother. “She came in reporting that her son had woken up in the middle of the night and was upset because he had seen the offender earlier that day,” says Jimmy Weisbruch, the Kaufman County investigator heading the case.
