A 40-year-old Lower Pottsgrove volleyball coach who admitted having sex repeatedly with a 15-year-old girl has been given 8 to 25 years in state prison. William Gordon III pleaded guilty to indecent assault, corrupting a minor, and other offenses. He was the girl’s coach and personal trainer, and they had sex as many as four or five times a week, sometimes at Gordon’s home and sometimes in a park, between May and mid-November of 2008. At his sentencing in Montgomery County Court, the girl’s mother described Gordon as a master of manipulation who betrayed the family and stole her daughter’s youth.
