(NECN: Justin Michaels, Concord, N.H.) - Coach Robert Joubert was supposed to appear at the Concord, N.H. district court Friday morning for a probable cause hearing because, police say, he coerced his victims to touch his private areas.
That hearing was waived; he will now go to the grand jury at the Superior Court in Concord. Joubert, however, will be back at the District Court on July 26 for a Class A misdemeanor of sexual assault.
“The charges are a pattern of sexual assault so multiple instances over the course of several months and possibly years,” said Lt. Timothy O’Malley.
Joubert allegedly assaulted two boys in Concord between 1995 and 2004.
According to court documents, one victim had "Joubert as his baseball coach from approximately 2001 through 2004" and was assaulted "at least five to seven times over the course of two years."
Joubert lived with the other boy and his mother for a while. The victim "estimated that these incidents occurred two to five times a week, during a three to four year period"
Both victims were under 13 years old when the alleged abuse occurred.
Joubert runs Seacoast Baseball Academy out of the York Sports Center in York, Maine where the investigation began in March
That investigation led them to believe that there could potentially be victims in New Hampshire
But Joubert has been accused twice in the past. No charges were ever filed.
“We have concerns because of Mr. Joubert's affiliation with youth sports that the potential is for other victims to be out there,” said O’Malley.
Joubert has his allies out there.
One woman he lived with said that this all stems from people simply being out to get him.
