Former Teacher to Plead Guilty to Child Seduction Charges

Guilfoy, ex-Greenwood High teacher & girls golf coach, would serve 5 years

A former Greenwood Community High School golf coach and teacher will plead guilty to having sex with a 17-year-old student.

37-year-old Timothy Guilfoy has agreed to a deal to plead guilty to two felony charges of child seduction, according to the Marion County Prosecutors Office.  In return, prosecutors will drop five other charges.  The deal has to be approved by a judge, and a hearing is scheduled for October 7th.

Guilfoy was arrested in March after police caught him having sex with the girl in his pickup truck at an apartment complex on the southside of Indianapolis.  Police had been called by a resident of the complex in the 8800 block of Madison Avenue who reported the unfamiliar truck.  Guilfoy later told police that he and the teenager had sex on other occasions, and he later resigned from the high school.

If the plea deal is accepted, Guilfoy will be sentenced to eight years in prison, but three of those years will be suspended.
