Ex-Nyack College Softball Coach Back in Court

A former Nyack College softball coach who was accused of inappropriately touching girls on the team is seeking to have the charges dismissed. 44-year old Kurt Ludwigsen of Ridgewood New Jersey was arrested in March of this year after he was fired as head coach, and was charged with seven counts of felony first-degree coercion as well as 94 counts of forcible touching, 94 counts of third-degree sexual abuse, and two counts of second-degree harassment all misdemeanors, for allegedly kissing and touching players on the team. Ludwigsen and his attorney’s are now claiming that the Rockland County District Attorney’s office failed to follow legal process by informing the jury they would only hear the misdemeanor charges. The defense attorneys stated that the jury did in fact hear the felony charges in court as well, violating the process. The case will continue in court on August 19.
