FBI Task Force Arrests Beaverton Cheerleading Coach for Abusive Sexual Contact Alleged Abuse Takes Place Aboard Aircraft

The FBI's Innocent Images Task Force, working with the Hillsboro Police Department, arrested David Aaron Chatman, 32, on Monday evening on a criminal complaint charging him with Abusive Sexual Contact aboard an aircraft. The arrest was without incident. A federal grand jury indicted Chatman on two counts of Abusive Sexual Contact. This crime carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Chatman was scheduled to appear before U.S. Magistrate Court Judge Paul Papak in Portland yesterday afternoon for an arraignment and detention hearing.

Chatman, who is a cheerleading coach with West Coast Extreme All-Star Cheerleaders, was escorting a group of approximately 20 cheerleaders back from a competition in Florida on April 24, 2007, when the alleged abusive sexual contact occurred. The alleged victim is a minor. West Coast Extreme All-Star Cheerleaders is a private company based in Tigard, Oregon. In addition to his position with West Coast, Chatman is a cheerleading coach at Southridge High School in Beaverton.

The FBI is interested in hearing from any community member who may have information about this investigation or about inappropriate contact Chatman may have had with children. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at (503) 224-4181.

An indictment is only an accusation of a crime the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Billy J. Williams who may be reached at (503) 727-1000.
