CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Daniel Gonsor faces multiple felony charges after he was accused of sexually assaulting two teenagers between June 2015 and July 2019, according to Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley.

Gonsor, 30, who worked as a wrestling coach at St. Edward High School in Lakewood, was indicted by a grand jury on the following charges:

  • 1 count of rape
  • 2 counts of attempted rape
  • 2 counts of sexual battery
  • 2 counts of felonious assault
  • 2 counts of endangering children
  • 2 counts of corrupting another with drugs
  • 9 counts of gross sexual imposition

“Gonsor violated his position of authority and trust and he will be held accountable,” O’Malley said in a prepared statement.

Gonsor is also a firefighter for the City of Cleveland.

Cleveland Division of Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said Gonsor will have a pre-disciplinary hearing with the Director of Public Safety “in the near future at which point his employment status will be determined.”

The case was investigated by the Lakewood Police Department.

Gonsor is scheduled to be arraigned on Feb. 19 at 8:30 a.m. at the Cuyahoga County Justice Center.
