Summary of Concussion Inc.’s Coverage of FBI and USA Swimming Sex Abuse

Published September 29th, 2014, Uncategorized

On January 31, 2013, we reported that Randall Devine, an FBI special agent in Los Angeles, was soliciting information from sexual abuse victims in all amateur sports. See http://concussioninc.net/?p=6635.

On February 21, 2013, we reported that the FBI office in Campbell, California, just outside San Jose, was investigating the full narrative surrounding the abusive practices of a former swim coach named Norm Havercroft. USA Swimming had been withholding what is believed to be thousands of pages of discovery documents in abuse civil lawsuits in California; after gladly paying tens of thousands of dollars in sanctions by lower courts, the organization was finally compelled by the California Supreme Court to produce all the pertinent files. Those records, submitted under seal to Santa Clara Superior Court, were subpoenaed by the FBI. See http://concussioninc.net/?p=6813.

On May 31, 2013, we reported that USA Swimming vice president David Berkoff – a key participant in the quarter-century-long cover-up of now-imprisoned coach Rick Curl’s statutory rapes of early-teen swimmer Kelley Davies Currin – told the court that he was closely following our coverage, about which he complained on incoherent grounds. See http://concussioninc.net/?p=7623.

On April 1, 2014, we reported on the 2008 arrest, in an Internet child-porn prosecution coordinated by the FBI’s North Miami office, of Roberto Caragol, a swim coach at Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale. Since Caragol was an associate of Alex Pussieldi (coverage of whom is all over these pages), we wondered why the FBI did not connect those dots. See http://concussioninc.net/?p=8922.

On June 10, 2014, we reported that information about USA Swimming’s clumsy computer hacking of a Colorado critic was turned over to and confirmed by a Denver-area FBI agent who is a cybercrime specialist, and by a civilian member of the FBI’s InfraGard unit.  See http://concussioninc.net/?p=9295.

Today we report that FBI officials have communicated directly with the USA Swimming leadership in Colorado Springs about their probes of not just insurance issues, but also sexual abuse cases and cover-ups themselves. See http://concussioninc.net/?p=9466.
