Bay Area Tennis Pro Faces More Molestation Charges

PLEASANTON, Calif. (AP) - More charges have been filed against a
veteran tennis instructor accused of molesting young girls at the Pleasanton country club where he coached.

Alameda County Sheriff's officials say two more alleged victims have come forward since Henry Germain of Dublin was arrested earlier this month for allegedly molesting three girls - ages 9 to 12 - in the 1990s.

Sheriff's Sgt. J.D. Nelson say the alleged victims were the children of members of the Castlewoood Country Club where the 62-year-old Germain coached tennis for 16 years.

Germain now faces 15 felony molestation counts alleging that he abused five victims.

He is being held at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin. A judge set bail at more than $1 million on Friday.
