Former Clovis coach indicted, sued for assault and battery

A former assistant track coach for Clovis Christian Schools, Garrett Scott Fly, has been indicted by a grand jury, and more information is surfacing Wednesday about the allegations.

Fly was indicted on October 6 on the felony charge of criminal sexual communication with a child and his case has been transferred to district court.

According to the criminal complaint and warrant, Fly and a 14-year-old girl sent "several pictures to each other via Snapchat" between April 3, 2017 and May 6, 2017.

Fly told investigators he didn't remember sending images to the teenager because of weird panic attacks or out of body experiences. He said that during those types of episodes, he "would blackout but his body would still do stuff" and he is unaware of what he does during this time.

In July, a 14- year-old student, named only as Jane Doe in a lawsuit, filed a tort claim against Fly, Clovis Christian Schools and superintendent Ladona Clayton.

The student claims the assistant coach, sexually groomed, manipulated, and abused her over the course of several months beginning in February. The documents state at least one incident of sexual abuse took place in Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, New Mexico, during an overnight trip for a track and field competition.

There are counts of battery, negligence and premises liability, vicarious liability sexual batteries, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The case is being handled in the Albuquerque District Court by Judge C. Shannon Bacon.
