Roseville wrestling coach sentenced to prison for sexually abusing minors he coached

A Placer Superior Court judge on Monday sentenced a Roseville wrestling coach and former Olympian who was found guilty of sexually abusing underage athletes while training them at a sporting event at his home.

Judge Garen Horst sentenced 52-year-old Quincey Lee Clark to 19 years and four months in prison for child sexual abuse, the Placer County District Attorney’s Office announced in a press release Tuesday afternoon.

In April, a jury found Clark guilty of 19 counts of child sexual abuse, including lewd acts on a child, sexual assault by bondage and forcible oral sex.

Clark worked as a wrestling coach and ran a sports training business out of his home in Roseville, police said. Clark was a member of USA Wrestling and competed in the 2000 Summer Olympics.

Quincey Lee Clark, 52, was sentenced to 19 years and four months in prison on Monday, July 8, 2024, for sexually abusing underage athletes he coached.

According to court records, Clark has been charged with multiple counts of lewd acts on a 14- to 15-year-old child. The charges relate to sexual abuse that allegedly occurred in July 2020 and June 2022.

Roseville police arrested Clark in September 2022. Police began investigating Clark on September 3 of that year after receiving a tip from “a community member,” police officials said. Investigators then found the minors who had been sexually abused.

Prosecutors alleged that Clark repeatedly sexually abused the minors he trained in his private wrestling studio.

The private wrestling lessons marketed by Clark quickly developed into massages for two victims before some of the private lessons turned into “inappropriate massages,” prosecutors said.

Investigators found that the sexual abuse of the children occurred “after significant intervention” by Clark. He told the athletes not to tell their parents so he could continue training them, prosecutors said.

On Tuesday, Clark remained in custody at the Placer County Jail while awaiting transfer to a California prison.
