Fairfield man, ex-Staples swim coach, charged with sexually assaulting girls

The former boys swim coach at Staples High School in Westport was arrested Monday after police said he confessed to sexually assaulting two young girls for more than three years. Jeffrey Schare of Fairfield, who had been coach of the Wreckers boys swim and dive team for seven years, faces multiple sex charges. Students and staff at Staples High School, where Schare also taught math, were told in late November that he was leaving the school, but no reason was given reason other than "personal reasons." Schare, 43, began "grooming" the two girls when they were much younger, "promising favors such as food and sleep-overs as rewards for his deviant behavior," according to the arrest warrant affidavit. He began touching the girls inappropriately, and the offenses progressed from there: "A behavior he readily admitted to his wife, was a lust for younger girls, an urge that he could no longer control," the affidavit sates.

Swim Coach Banned for Life in Sexual Abuse Case

USA Swimming banned coach Rick  Curl for life for an improper relationship with a teenage swimmer in  the 1980s. Curl, who ran one of the  nation's largest swim clubs near Washington, D.C., and coached 1996 and 2000  Olympic gold medalist Tom  Dolan, was scheduled for a hearing Wednesday before the National  Board of Review. But he informed the governing body he was waiving his right  to challenge the case. Curl voluntarily gave up his  membership and will be added to USA Swimming's list of banned individuals, which  is published on the organization Web site. The coach was accused of  starting a relationship with a 13-year-old female swimmer in the 1980s. Kelley  Davis Currin said she received a $150,000 settlement from Curl not to go to  law enforcement with details of the illicit four-year relationship, but decided  to come forward after the sport was rocked by a sexual abuse scandal two  years ago.
