Diablo Valley College Track Coach Accused of Human Trafficking

Diablo Valley College Track Coach Accused of Human Trafficking

“The district is not naming the student involved to protect her privacy”

The article notes that this man was named ‘coach of the year’ for California community colleges in 2022. Yikes.

KRON News reports:

Bay Area college coach charged with pimping women into prostitution

A faculty member and former track coach at Diablo Valley College is accused of human trafficking, pandering, pimping, and other charges related to the use of force while engaging in sexual acts, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Kyle Lee Whitmore, 39, of Crockett, is being held without bail at Martinez Detention Facility.

Whitmore is accused of trafficking two women, Jane Doe #1 and Jane Doe #2, for prostitution. He is also being charged with one count of pimping and four counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object.

At least one of the alleged victims is a student, said Tim Leong, a public information officer for Contra Costa Community College District. “The district is not naming the student involved to protect her privacy,” Leong told KRON4.

“On Monday, September 11, 2023, the District Attorney’s Office filed a felony complaint outlining nine charges against Mr. Whitmore in connection with several offenses, some involving a student,” Leong wrote.

Prosecutors wrote, “Jane Doe #1 reported her situation to authorities at Diablo Valley College. After an investigation by campus police and the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office, Whitmore was arrested and taken into custody.”

It’s unclear if “Jane Doe #2” is affiliated with the college.

Whitmore is an instructor of communication studies, as well as a former track & field coach, according to Diablo Valley College’s website. Whitmore taught on the college’s Pleasant Hill campus. He was named “Coach of the Year” in 2022 for California community colleges.

Leong said the college’s staff members identified “a serious situation” concerning Whitmore, and worked with campus police, the sheriff, and district attorney.

Waiting on the inevitable “background check failure”.

So, are we now just lumping all bad things into the “trafficking” category? Prostitution is not necessarily “trafficking” under the definitions that used to exist.

Or, did he actually hold her passport so she couldn’t leave, etc.?

    and even then, if a woman walks into a police station, gets a Spanish speaking officer, and tells him that the pimp at a certain address is holding her passport, won’t they raid the place and recover the passport and arrest the pimp?

How much you want to bet that those girls wanted these guy to be there as they pimped themselves out?

It’s actually not that uncommon in college now, at least not as much as it once was. I have openly heard girls in my classes talking about finding some older guy to pay for their college who they sleep with until they graduate. I didn’t touch the conversation with a 10 ft pole because it’s a giant minefield. However, the lack of shame/ethics and situational awareness was appalling.

Will the Diversity Equity And Inclusion Administrators seek out other former coaches — of diverse backgrounds, of diverse races and inclusive sexual identities — in order to maintain equitable Diablo faculty representation in California state prison?

One of the questions is what kind of threat he used to keep the girls in line. Which apparently worked until it didn’t.
