FT. LAUDERDALE (CBS4) ―A Hollywood track coach and a school volunteer remain behind bars after being accused of having sex with two teenage girls, the youngest only 15 years old. Twenty-nine-year old track coach Raymond Holmes ( pictures on your right) and 19-year-old assistant track coach David Tillman (pictured below) worked at Hollywood Christian Academy.

According to police, the girls, ages 15 and 16, were picked up by Holmes and Tillman and told they were going to skip school. Tillman said he and Holmes drove the victims around while doing some errands and then took them back to Tillman’s house.

The 15-year-old victim said she had consensual sex with Tillman in the bedroom when the other victim left the home with Holmes. Police say Tillman admitted to taking both girls out of school and that he had sex with the 15-year-old at his home.

In a separate incident, a 16-year-old girl told police that Holmes picked her up from a local McDonald’s and took her to his apartment. The girl said she and Holmes had sex before going back to Tillman’s apartment. Holmes reportedly used a condom during the encounter on March 19.But in another incident a month earlier, he reportedly did not use a condom. The 16-year-old said the sexual encounter where the pair had unsafe sex took place when the track team traveled to Orlando in February.

Even though parents were surprised and disturbed, one student who spoke to CBS4 News said he wasn’t surprised at all. He said the victims used to talk about the older men in class.

“I’ve seen it coming,” said 17-year-old Kyle Baker, “because how the girls talked, how they looked at them, I mean, I don’t know, I don’t want to say something too bad.”

“Obviously this is a case where parents trust their children with the school,” said Frank Sousa of the Ft. Lauderdale Police Department. “Could the school have anticipated? We don’t know even if they say it’s consensual, we as adults know the difference.”

Holmes was being held in the Broward County Jail on $25,000 bond; Tillman is being held on $15,000 bond.

    Here is another fine case of a school not supervising their employees, someone else in the administration had to have got a whiff of the behavior going on. There isn’t a safe place to raise your children anymore, and they wonder why we worry so much when they are out with friends.

    Come one people. Get a damn clue. The girls are old enough to have sex. Clearly the reason WHY they willingly had it. It is obvious that the law needs to stay the hell out of the way. 15 and 16 years old is more than old enough because of puberty and sex drive. Its human instinct. I could care less what anyone else tries to say about it. Man made ideals in society don’t override mother nature.
