Lifeguard on sex offender registry booted from swim club | News
FOOTHILL FARMS, CA - A lifeguard at the private Cabana Club swimming club has been told not to come back on the property after some members discovered he is listed on the Megan's Law registry.
Member Roy Hollis said lifeguard Sandy Sturman, who's parents were serving as the club's president and vice-president had been making girls uncomfortable by trying to look into their dressing area.
"That and that he always likes to hug you. He's always hugging the girls," Hollis said.
Sturman's mother, Lori Coleman, said her son is no longer on probation and has served his debt to society.
Sturman was convicted of several offenses as a juvenile and served 2.5 years for an offense as an adult.
On Monday night, board members voted to oust Sturman's parents from their jobs as president and vice-president and also to permanently ban Sturman himself.
The club also decided to investigate the handling of the organization's finances by former president Coleman.
"We've all made mistakes here. There's no pointing fingers. Let's just figure out what we're gonna do from this level on. And that's kind of where we left it at," said Hollis, who intends to run for a place on the club's board.
Coleman said she has devoted herself to the club for the last seven years and said she welcomed an examination of the books.
"If I was taking money, why am I behind on my car payment, why am I struggling for groceries. I don't think so," Coleman said.
Members said the club has become rundown and facing unpaid debt in recent years.
Board members voted to assess members a one-time amount $50.00 to help get the club's finances on track.
"We're gonna get back on our feet, we're gonna fix these problems. It's not gonna be easy, but we're gonna do it," said Hollis.
