Former St. Edward wrestling coach pleads guilty to gross sexual imposition


CLEVELAND (WJW)– A former wrestling coach at St. Edward High School in Lakewood appeared in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court on Tuesday.

Daniel Gonsor, 32, pleaded guilty to five counts of gross sexual imposition, three counts of corrupting another with drugs and two counts of endangering children. The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office said he will be required to register as a Tier I sex offender as part of his plea deal.
