Longview Boxing Coach Pleads Guilty To Assaulting Woman

KELSO, Wash. (AP) – A southwest Washington man who coached youth boxing in Longview pleaded guilty to assaulting a woman and violating no contact orders and in exchange was accepted into a court-ordered drug program.

The Daily News reports 44-year-old Juan Armando Rodriguez on Thursday was accepted into Cowlitz County Superior Court’s Drug Court, which allows people to have charges dismissed if they complete 12 months of court-supervised drug treatment.

Court documents say his signed confessions will be the only evidence presented in trials for his charges if he does not complete the program.
