 HASTINGS, MI (WTVB) - The jury in the Chad Curtis molestation trial in Barry County has found him guilty on all counts.  It only took a couple of hours Friday to reach the verdict.  The former Detroit Tiger and New York Yankee was charged with inappropriately touching young female athletes at Lakewood High where he was a volunteer trainer, and applied massages.

Assistant. Prosecutor Christopher Ellsworth argued that the jury had heard direct and explicit testimony from several girls revealing a pattern of behavior. Defense Attorney David Dodge questioned the credibility of the girls saying they had mistaken full body massages for inappropriate contact.He will be sentenced September 26th.  His attorney says he will appeal.
