Roseville wrestling coach sentenced to prison for sexually abusing minors he was training

A Placer Superior Court judge on Monday sentenced a Roseville wrestling coach and former Olympian convicted of sexually abusing underage teen athletes while training them as part of a sports business at his home.

Judge Garen Horst sentenced Quincey Lee Clark, 52, to 19 years and four months in prison for the child sexual abuse, the Placer County District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday afternoon in a news release.

In April, a jury found Clark guilty on 19 counts of child sexual abuse including charges of committing lewd acts on a child, sexual battery by restraint and forced oral copulation.

Clark worked as a wrestling coach and ran a sports training business out of his Roseville home, police have said. Clark was a member of USA Wrestling and competed in the 2000 Summer Olympics.

Quincey Lee Clark, 52, on Monday July 8, 2024, was sentenced to 19 years and four months in prison for sexually abusing underage athletes he was training.

Quincey Lee Clark, 52, on Monday July 8, 2024, was sentenced to 19 years and four months in prison for sexually abusing underage athletes he was training.

Clark was charged with numerous counts of committing lewd acts upon a child 14 to 15 years old, according to court records. The charges stem from sexual abuse that reportedly occurred in July 2020 and June 2022.

The Roseville Police Department arrested Clark in September 2022. The Police Department started investigating Clark on Sept. 3 of that year after receiving a tip from “a community member,” police officials have said. Detectives then found the minors who were sexually abused.

Prosecutors said Clark repeatedly sexually abused the minors he was training at his home wrestling gym.

The private wrestling lessons marketed by Clark quickly progressed to massages for two victims before they devolved into “inappropriate massages” for some of the private sessions, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Investigators discovered the child sexual abuse occurred “after considerable grooming” by Clark, who told the athletes not to tell their parents so he could continue training them, prosecutors said.

On Tuesday, Clark remained in custody at the Placer County Jail as he awaits transfer to a California prison.
