Last July we told you about the interest of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a U.S. attorney’s office in the role of USA Swimming in covering up the sex crimes of a California coach named Norm Havercroft, who bounced from club program to club program, leaving a trail of victims. See “FBI Should Investigate USA Swimming For Cover-Up of Coach Norm Havercroft’s Serial Sex Abuse,” https://concussioninc.net/?p=5784.
Today the FBI’s speculated interest became reality. Attorney B. Robert Allard, who represents victim Jancy Thompson in a lawsuit against Havercroft and USA Swimming in California Superior Court, has received a subpoena from the FBI for “Any and all records regarding USA SWIMMING and NORMAN HAVERCROFT.”
The enormous implications of this step do not require further immediate elaboration.
In the next post, we republish the full text of Chapter 3 of Muchnick’s April 2012 ebook, PENN STATE IN THE POOL: The Cover-Up of the USA Swimming Youth Coach Sex Abuse Scandal, which focuses on the sundry and sinister activities of Havercroft.
