An October trial date has been set for Olympic show jumper Rich Fellers, who was arrested one year ago on suspicion of sexually abusing a minor student.
Fellers, 62, was arrested June 7, 2021, on four counts of second-degree sexual abuse by the Tualatin (Oregon) Police Department after he was indicted by a grand jury. He is accused of crimes against Maggie Kehring, a then 17-year-old former student who came forward publicly after Fellers was suspended temporarily by the U.S. Center for SafeSport in February 2021.
In July 2021, SafeSport changed Rich’s status to “ineligible,” listing his misconduct as “criminal disposition; criminal disposition involving a minor; criminal disposition-sexual misconduct.”
He pleaded not guilty to all criminal charges. A 12-person jury trial has been scheduled to begin Oct. 11 at the Washington County Courthouse in Hillsboro, Oregon.
