Softball Coach Randy Ronning Arrested In Sex Assault Of Girls



A girl's hockey and softball volunteer coach has been arrested for sexually assaulting a 9 and 10-year-old girl at a Day's Inn in Bloomington.

Randy Lee Ronning, 36, of Bloomington, was staying at the motel with an unidentified woman and both girls when he was purportedly seen touching one of the girls inappropriately.

Police were then called into investigate and later learned more information after the 10-year-old told them that Ronning had assaulted her as well on at least several different occasions over a period of seven years. Apparently during that time he had been babysitting the kids as well. 

What's upsetting here besides the obvious is that Mr. Ronning is also a sex offender who had previously been convicted in a 1992 incident. The Bloomington Athletic Association, which Ronning had worked under, did not do and reportedly never has done a background check on any individual coaching the area children. 

That's kind of messed up, but not really all that surprising.  Anyway, Ronning has since admitted to the allegations.
