Former Hopkins Academy Coach Pleads Guilty to Sex Charge
A former Hopkins Academy softball coach has pleaded guilty to having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a student. Glenn Cooke was charged with unnatural and lascivious acts, but as part of a plea agreement, his case was continued without a finding. While on probation, Cooke must stay away from the victim, stop coaching softball, and not go anywhere near the high school in Hadley. Cooke was once charged with forcible rape in connection with the same victim, but a judge dismissed those charges last year, saying the grand jury was given misleading evidence.
