Odessa man accused of posing as a teen, pleads not guilty

ODESSA, TX (KCBD) - The West Texas man posing as an Odessa teenager has pleaded not guilty to the six felony counts filed against him.

Guerdwich Montimere, 22, is accused of masquerading as a teenager to become a high school basketball star at Odessa Permian High School.

Montimere is accused of two counts of sexual assault, three counts of tampering with government records, and identity theft. Montimere is said to have posed as a teenage using the name "Jerry Joseph."

The alleged fraud unraveled after coaches at an amateur basketball tournament said they recognized Montimer as a 2007 graduate of a Florida High School.
