Coach facing sex charges resigns
An Iron Range high school girls hockey coach scheduled to appear in an Ohio courtroom this morning on a charge that he attempted to have sex with a "14-year-old girl'' he met on the Internet has resigned from his coaching position.
Donald Richard Lindstrom, 48, of Babbitt, coached the Babbitt-Embarrass/Tower-Soudan/Ely girls hockey team last season and was an assistant coach the season before.
He was arraigned in Ohio on Friday on three felony counts: one count of attempted unlawful sex with a minor and two counts of importuning — soliciting another for sexual activity by means of a telecommunications device.
It's always disturbing to read of a coach doing this sort of thing. Coaches and teachers of all people should have enough control!
