High school volunteer crew coach pleads guilty to statutory rape of two students

KINGSTON – A Town of Kingston man, who served as a volunteer crew coach Kingston High School, pled guilty in Ulster County Court on Wednesday to three counts of statutory rape and one count of criminal sexual act, all felonies.

Kevin Quick, 23, of 39 Jockey Hill Road in the Town of Kingston admitted that on May 4, 2013 he had sexual intercourse with one 15-year-old. He also admitted that during April 2013, he had sex with a second victim, who was 16. Quick also admitted to engaging in both sexual intercourse and oral sex with the 16-year-old on a separate occasion between April 7 and May 3.

Quick was indicted by an Ulster County grand jury last April following an investigation by the Ulster County Sheriff’s Office, which was initiated by the Kingston High School resource officer.

The investigation was triggered when authorities learned that Quick attended a party at a private home in the Town of Esopus when a number of underage high school students were drinking.

Quick admitted that the sexual conduct with the 15-year-old occurred at that party.

Quick was known to both victims through his position as volunteer coach.

“The idea that a coach with whom we entrust our young athletes would engage in sexual conduct with young students is repugnant,” said Ulster County District Attorney Holley Carnright. “This defendant violated the trust placed in him, not only by the student victims, but by their parents, the school and this community.”

Quick is expected to be sentenced next week.
