Former Coach Indicted on Sexual Assault Charges

Former third and fourth grade Wildcats coach Timothy Longua, 41, 7 Lane Way has been indicted by a Rockingham County grand jury on two counts of Aggravated Felonious Sexual Assault, four counts of Felonious Sexual Assault and one count of Attempted Felonious Sexual Assault, according to prosecutors.

According to the seven indictments, on the Aggravated Felonious Sexual Assault charges, Longua is accused of touching two girls under the age of 13 at the time in a sexual manner, one between Aug. 1, 2012 and Aug. 31, 2012 and the other girl between Dec. 1, 2012 and Dec. 31, 2012, with the intent of sexual gratification.

The four Felonious Sexual Assault charges accuse Longua of touching the same two girls in a sexual manner between May and December 2012. The indictments allege that Longua touched the girls’ buttocks and breasts.
The Attempted Felonious Sexual Assault refers to Longua’s attempting to touch one of the girls, who told him to stop.

According to the police at the time of Longua’s arrest, the alleged assaults took place at Longua’s home when his daughter was hosting sleepovers. Londonderry Police Lt. Timothy Jones said police had contacted Longua and he turned himself in on March 1, at which time he was booked and taken to the Rockingham County Jail on $10,000 cash bail.

“Mr. Longua couldn’t pay the bail that night but was subsequently bailed out the next day,” Jones said.
Jones said that when Longua turned himself in, he didn’t give much information and didn’t admit to any of the charges.

Longua remains free on the $10,000 cash bail and is scheduled for arraignment later this month.
“Tim and his family adamantly deny these charges and maintain his absolute innocence, Longua’s attorney, Chuck Keefe, said. “They are very happy for the tremendous amount of support that they have received from family, friends and the community. Although we haven’t received all of the police reports yet, we look forward to demonstrating that these are false allegations.”
