ZIONSVILLE, Ind. — A former Zionsville gymnastics coach is charged with sex crimes involving children.

Kenneth ‘Andy’ Arnold, 32, of Crawfordsville, was charged after a gymnastics student told police he raped and molested her three times between 2014 and 2016.

In 2016, Arnold was charged with two counts of child molesting and one charge of battery after being accused of assaulting three girls ages 10-12 while working at Zionsville’s InterActive Academy.

Arnold pleaded guilty in 2018 and was given six-and-a-half years of probation.

Arnold was arrested on Aug. 27 on four charges of child molestation.

The girl who most recently accused Arnold of abuse told investigators that Arnold touched her inappropriately during practice at InterActive Academy and raped her three times between 2014 and 2016. She told police that she “did not immediately realize what happened” but came forward after receiving therapy, according to The Lebanon Reporter.

Arnold pleaded not guilty on Monday and has a pre-trial hearing set for October.
