GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — An athletic trainer who allegedly recorded himself inappropriately touching Kent City High School students has taken a plea deal.

Justin Greenlaw of Grand Rapids pleaded no contest to fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct, a two-year felony. He also entered a guilty plea to two counts of using a computer to commit a crime/capturing an image of an unclothed person, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison for each count.

In return for Greenlaw’s plea, the prosecutor dismissed two other counts of using a computer to commit a crime/capturing an image of an unclothed person.

Greenlaw, who worked for Spectrum Health, was contracted out by Kent City High School to work as its athletic trainer for three years.

According to probable cause documents in two of the cases, police said they found photos and videos on Greenlaw’s cellphone that showed him inappropriately touching two high school students who were partially unclothed. The court documents said the girls were unaware they were being photographed or recorded.

The CSC charge involved a third Kent City High School student.

The remaining charges stemmed from complaints of inappropriate touching from two employees of a company that had a contract with Greenlaw.
