Rockstar Cheer Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Rockstar Cheer Sexual Abuse Attorneys

We Stand Up For the Survivors of the Rockstar Cheer Greenville Sexual Abuse, So All Perpetrators Are Held Accountable.

A parent’s nightmare has become a reality for potentially dozens of cheerleaders at Rockstar Cheer and Dance Inc. in Greenville County, South Carolina. A federal lawsuit filed on September 1, 2022, and expanded on September 15, 2022, accuses several coaches of sexual abuse and misconduct. The lawsuit is against the once-prominent cheerleading gym, its founder, and its parent company, the U.S. All Star Federation (USASF).

USASF, the governing body of the cheer industry, is supposed to protect cheerleaders and ensure they train in a safe and harmless environment. In addition, USASF must prevent sexual misconduct in competitive cheerleading and promptly respond to any complaints. Unfortunately, the organization failed to protect these individuals.

Now, a growing number of male and female survivors are coming forward to share their experiences anonymously. The sexual abuse attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson closely listen to these survivors’ stories and are ready to give them the accountability and justice they deserve while maintaining their confidentiality. Speak with us today for a free evaluation of your case. You can do so by calling 800-533-6845 or by submitting a free, confidential case evaluation form on our site.

Six Coaches Named Defendants in Rockstar Cheer Lawsuit

Multiple survivors have spoken out about their accounts of alleged sexual abuse, assault, and misconduct at the hands of their coaches at Rockstar Greenville. In addition to Rockstar Cheer founder Scott Foster, former coaches Kenny Feeley, Josh Guyton, Nathan Allan Plank, Christopher Hinton, Traevon Black, and Peter Holley were named defendants in the lawsuit against the since-shuttered gym.

Accusations against these coaches include a range of misconduct, including rape, providing drugs and alcohol to athletes, inappropriate touching and groping, and exchanging sexual images. In several instances, the plaintiffs were underage when the alleged abuse occurred, with Foster potentially aware of these despicable acts. Foster died by suicide shortly after the investigation began.

The lawsuit also claims that Rockstar Greenville failed to conduct proper background checks, train and supervise Foster’s performance, and prevent sexual misconduct.

What is Considered Sexual Abuse?

Children are unable to consent to sexual activity in every aspect. Therefore, if an adult engages in inappropriate behavior (looking, touching, or showing) with a minor to meet the adult’s interest or sexual needs, it is considered sexual abuse. Child sexual abuse can be separated into two categories:

Non-contact sexual abuse (abuse that does not involve physical contact) includes an adult exposing their genitals or masturbating in front of a child, showing pornography to a child, and peeking in on a child as they change or shower.

Contact sexual abuse (abuse that includes physical contact) includes making a child touch another child or adult sexually and any other sexual contact between an adult and a child such as groping and fondling.

The manufacturing, distribution, and viewing of child pornography, now called child sexual abuse material (CSAM), is also considered child sexual abuse. While not all child sexual abuse may be physical in nature, it is still abuse, and abusers can be held accountable.
