Former Cheer Coach Charged With Molesting Young Girls

Erick Joseph Kristianson, a former competitive cheerleading coach, has been charged with several felonies for molesting six girls, some as young as 11 years old, in Southern California.

Kristianson had previously coached at a cheer club in Orange County and at Trabuco Hills High School in Mission Viejo. He is also facing charges of child molestation and child exhibition in Florida related to four young cheer athletes he coached in Daytona Beach.

The 44-year-old was arrested last week in Fargo, North Dakota, on a warrant related to the Orange County case.
