Kernersville YMCA Lawsuit

Lawsuit Filed Against Kernersville Family YMCA

Our firm has filed a civil lawsuit in Forsyth County Superior Court against Michael Todd Pegram and the Kernersville Family YMCA. We represent nine victims which we are seeking to recover compensatory and punitive damages from the YMCA arising out of multiple sexual assaults Mr. Pegram committed against young boys in the 1990s and early 2000s.

The lawsuit alleges that Mr. Pegram was a counselor at the Kernersville Family YMCA and used his position to befriend and engage in inappropriate relationships with young boys who attended YMCA programs and that the YMCA knew or should have known about the abuse. Physical abuses include penetration, masturbation and showing the boys pornography. Mr. Pegram also mentally abused the boys with threats of violence against their families if they ever told anyone what happened.

Mr. Pegram was criminally charged for the sexual assaults he committed and on June 26, 2019, Mr. Pegram plead guilty to five counts of first-degree sex offense, one count of attempted first-degree sex offense, one count of statutory sex offense with a child and twenty-one counts of taking indecent liberties with a child. He is currently serving his sentence in the Alexander Correctional institution.
