Troubling testimony was heard Monday against a former Michigan high school basketball coach who is accused of sexually assaulting multiple students.

Two of the alleged victims, 15 and 16 years old, took the stand in court against 43-year-old Jerremy Thompkins, who was taken into custody on Monday.

One of the alleged victims claimed Thompkins, the former Farmington High School basketball coach, would stay the night at his home in Detroit, up to five times a week this past summer, where the alleged assault happened the night of homecoming in October.

The other alleged victim said during his testimony that Thompkins manipulated his parents into frequent sleepovers at his home under the ruse of a “mentorship”.
