Trial date set for Whitmore Lake gymnastics trainer

A trial date has been set for the owner of a Whitmore Lake gymnastics business charged with accosting a child for immoral purposes. 

According to court records, 42-year-old Jermain Martinez will stand trial March 20th in front of Circuit Court Judge Suzanne Geddis.

Martinez, who owns the iTumble gymnastics business in Whitmore Lake, turned himself into the Green Oak Township Police Department last August after a 17-year-old female gym employee said Martinez brought her to a trailer he owned in Washtenaw County, where the alleged abuse occurred.

Martinez’s attorney previously said his client denies the allegations, which he claims were made the day after he ended a relationship with the girl’s mother.

Martinez has previous OUIL convictions, the most recent of which he served time in prison before being released in September of 2021.
