Coach accused of molesting teen heads straight to trial
April 20, 2006, 12:00 AM By Michelle Durand
The Woodside High School girls’ basketball coach accused of molestation will head straight to a jury trial after waiving a preliminary hearing in which the prosecution must prove the merit of its evidence.

Guy Delmar Hayman, 43, has pleaded not guilty to three felony counts of lewd acts with a minor and 41 misdemeanor counts of child molestation or annoyance.

After postponing the preliminary hearing early last month, Hayman waived the process completely Wednesday.

Hayman now moves directly to Superior Court and is scheduled to enter a plea May 4. At that appearance, Hayman will also likely set a jury trial date.

Forgoing a preliminary hearing is not uncommon, particularly in the case of alleged child molestation.

According to the District Attorney’s Office, Hayman began molesting the girl in November 2003 when she was 14 years old. The incidents continued until she was 15 and included both inappropriate touching — the source of the felony charges — and repeated instances of masturbation in front of the girl while she showered, according to the prosecution.

On Jan. 9, investigators began reviewing a tip from the previous weekend made by the girl and her mother. Police arrested Hayman two days later.

At the time of his arrest, Hayman had coached the Woodside High School varsity girl’s basketball team for eight years but did not teach any classes.

The single victim is not related to the school or team, police have reported. Hayman has a prior 1991 conviction on a single peeping charge. He served 18 months supervised probation.

Hayman is out of custody on a $300,000 property bond posted eight days after his Jan. 11 arrest.
