Tumbling coach from Kennebunk charged with sexual abuse of a minor

A 43 year old gymnastics teacher who works in both Biddeford and Westbrook is accused of sexually abusing a minor.

KENNEBUNK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — A 43-year-old Kennebunk man has been charged by Westbrook police with one count of sexual abuse of a minor.

Jeremy R. Link was arrested on Saturday. He was in the Cumberland County Superior Court Monday afternoon.

The District Attorney said the father of a 14-year-old girl who took gymnastics at Elite All Stars of Maine in Westbrook was looking for his daughter, when he walked in on Link sexually abusing the young girl. 

According to his Facebook page, Link is a tumbling coach at Elite All Stars of Maine in Westbrook. 

Judge Lance Walker set bail at $15,000 cash or $100,000 surety and ordered Link will have no contact with anyone under 16.

In a Facebook post, owner Julie Dvilinsky expressed her "shock, sadness and grief for the child and their family involved."

"This individual is no longer a staff member at our gym, and they are not a representative of our morals, values or what we teach, from staff to athletes."
