My daughter is 14 and I just found out her coach got her pregnant. He is 45! Is there something I can do to get this pedophile?

Yes you can. He committed first degree sexual assault against your daughter, and can serve sentenced up to 20 years in prison, after which he will rejoin society as a registered sex offender. In addition, you can sue for civil damages against him. Contact your local police, and they can help you from there. One thing to note- the law making this illegal wasn't passed until July 10, 2001. Governor Cayetano vetoed this bill, but it was overridden by the House and Senate
