Former High School Football Coach, Tom Duffy, Indicted on Sodomy Charges


A former high school football coach has been indicted by a grand jury on sodomy charges in Boyle Circuit Court last Tuesday.

Authorities say Tom Duffy (69), was a coach in Danville when they say the crime happened. Police say a victim recently came forward to report the incidents, which they claim occurred in 1982 and 1983.

He was indicted on four felony sodomy counts in the third degree, a class D Felony. Under the Kentucky Revised Statute, there is no statute of limitations for felonies.

The indictment says the victim was under the age of 16, but doesn’t state if they were a student. Police are not saying if the victim was male or female.

Duffy, who now lives in Lexington, was arrested and has since been released from jail on a $10,000 bond.

Duffy coached Danville High School’s football team from 1980-1987 and led the team to two state championship titles. After leaving Danville, he coached the Highlands from 1988-1993. The team won state championships in 1989 and 1992, amassing a 61-15 record while in Fort Thomas.

Police say they can’t release any more details because they are still investigating and interviewing witnesses.


After leaving Fort Thomas, Duffy worked for Henderson County High School from 1994-2006.

Duffy was the head coach here through 2003 and then was an assistant coach for his son Duffer Duffy from 2004 through 2006.
