Alexander Greaux-Gomez, 41, was convicted of sexual luring of a minor and the transport of a minor with the intention of participating in criminal sexual behavior on Wednesday
A former Olympic-turned and field coach forced a 15-year-old student to have sex with him at a specialized gym in Puerto Rico.
Trackster Alexander Greaux-Gomez, who represented American territory at the 2004 Olympic Games, was 39 when he first abused the teenager.
The 41-year-old athlete was found guilty in the US court in Puerto Rico for sexual luring of a minor and the transportation of a minor with the intention of committing criminal sexual behavior.
He has now been in prison for at least 10 years.
A jury of seven men and five women acquitted the retired athlete from producing child pornography after graphic images of the girl were found on his phone, according to El Vocero.
Greaux-Gomez started training upcoming athletic trainers after his career as a career.
The federal authorities said he met his victim when she went to study seventh grade and went to boarding school at Albergue Olímpico, a sports training facility in Salinas, Puerto Rico.
She was 15 when he first started to prey on her in October 2016.
Greaux-Gomez forced his teenage victim to have sex with him several times at the Olímpico school, in his car, and at an abandoned home school that he had once operated on.
Puerto Rican police received a tip about the inappropriate relationship and reported federal authorities in charge of investigating crimes in the field of crime on American territory.
He was arrested in February 2017.
Prosecutors showed the Court during his trial. What App SMS messages said, they said, Greaux-Gomez sent the 15-year-old to keep her sexual relationship a secret.

& # 39; All investigations regarding the exploitation of children are horrific, but it is particularly disturbing when the accused takes a position of trust in our society & # 39 ;, said special agent Iván J. Arvelo of Homeland Security Investigations.
Greaux-Gomez led the 3,000-meter towering chase to Puerto Rico during the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, taking 28th place.
He won his last gold medal at the Central American and Caribbean Games 2010, a competition that takes place every four years between the four-yearly Olympic Games.
His sentencing hearing is scheduled for August 22.
