A world-class ice dancer from Clarksville has pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors in connection with allegations that he sexually abused a 16-year-old girl in Lake Placid, N.Y.
Genrikh Sretenski, 50, a Russian-born former Olympic competitor, pleaded guilty in January to third-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child, according to his defense attorney Terence L. Kindlon.
Under terms of the plea deal in courts in Essex County and Lake Placid Village, N.Y., he was fined, given a one-year conditional release and ordered to stay away from the teenager, according to an email from Essex County, N.Y., prosecutors.
The charges stemmed from allegations of sexual abuse in July 2011 in Lake Placid, N.Y.
A $5 million civil lawsuit alleging that he fondled a skater he coached in Laurel is pending in Prince George's County, according to court records.
