Mother speaks on sex assault charges for Tae Kwan Do teacher

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A Colorado Springs Tae Kwan Do teacher remains in jail, accused of sexually abusing children he coached.

Glenn Lainfiesta appeared before a judge for the first time on Wednesday.

He’s the Tae Kwan Do coach accused of sexually assaulting two of his students, and is being held right now at the El Paso County Jail.

Hes accused of sexually assaulting a child.

For families who say they trusted him with their kid as a teacher, this whole situation is hard to accept.

One mother says her son, who is just 5 years old, trained under Lainfiesta for about a year.

Lainfiesta is a sparring coach at the Academy of Life and Leadership Tae Kwan Do.

According to court papers-- he touched two of his students inappropriately earlier this month.

Lainfiesta is expected to be back in court on May 1st.

If you think you might have information about this case, or any possible other victims, you can contact the sheriff’s office.
