Pair pleads guilty to child molestation

A pair of former youth-baseball coaches pleaded guilty Tuesday in Tuolumne County Superior Court to several charges of child molestation.

Lynn Leroy Lloyd and his wife, Elisa Marie Lloyd, both 34 and listed as transients, will face up to a year in county jail plus probation after each pleaded guilty to five molestation counts and a charge of conspiracy to commit a crime.

The Lloyds will be formally sentenced at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 4 in Tuolumne County Superior Court Department 1.

The Lloyds were arrested on the morning of May 22, following a search of the Twain Harte hotel room where they were staying. 

The arrests were spurred by allegations the Lloyds had sex with a 14-year-old girl.

The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office began investigating in January after administrators at the girl’s school found and turned into the Sheriff’s Office dozens of alleged “love letters” from Lynn Lloyd to the girl.

The Lloyds were both active as baseball coaches for local youth.

Clint Parrish, president of Woods Creek Little League, said in an email to league parents that previous background checks on the Lloyds did not reveal “any history which would suggest this type of behavior.”

At Tuesday’s hearing, Judge Donald Segerstrom said the victim was not seeking the maximum punishment for the offenses and had even “adopted sympathy” toward the defendants.
