|Guy Delmar Hayman, former coach of the Woodside High School girls varsity basketball team, pleaded no contest Tuesday to a felony charge of lewd and lascivious conduct on a 14-year-old child and a misdemeanor count of annoying or molesting a child under the age of 18.
Prosecutor Gregory Devitt of the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office said Hayman faces up to three years in prison. A sentencing hearing is set for Nov. 15 in San Mateo County Superior Court.
Hayman, who was fired as coach after his Jan. 11 arrest by Redwood City police, is out of jail on $500,000 bail. The bail was increased from $300,000 after he was re-arrested in May on charges that he had been masturbating in public on the grounds of an apartment complex in Mountain View.
The charges did not involve any girls on Woodside's varsity team, prosecutors said. Hayman coached at Woodside for seven or eight years, according to Woodside High Principal Linda Common.
Hayman initially pleaded not guilty in January to three felony counts of lewd acts with a girl, who was 14 when the molestation allegedly first occurred, and 41 misdemeanor counts of annoyance or molestation of the same girl.
The county probation department will study Hayman’s conviction and his criminal history in preparing a report for the judge that will include a sentence recommendation, Devitt said.
