A Lubbock gymnastics coach was in jail Wednesday night, on charges of molesting a former student over several years. Police arrested 29-year-old Joel Woodruff on Friday. He now faces Aggravated Sexual Assault charges.
The alleged abuse began six years ago, and spanned a period of about three years. His accuser is now 20-years-old. He reported the incident to police in August, out of concern for other young boys who might be victimized.
