NORTHAMPTON — A Texas man accused of eight counts of indecent assault and one count of rape was released on $5,000 bail and several conditions following his arraignment Monday in Hampshire Superior Court.

David S. Rose, 38, of San Antonio is accused of molesting three teenage girls while working as a massage therapist for USA Cycling at a five-day training camp in Northampton last September.

Northampton Police were alerted to the alleged misconduct in January via a USA Cycling coach. Detective Lauren Bolduc conducted the investigation, interviewing the girls along with other athletes and coaches and gathering documents related to the training camp, according to court documents.

The girls, ages 17 and 18 at the time, told police of improper touching that in some cases escalated over the course of two or three massage sessions.

USA Cycling is the governing body for the sport of cycling in the U.S. and oversees the disciplines of road, track, mountain bike, cyclocross and BMX, according to its website.

At Rose’s arraignment, Judge Francis Flannery imposed conditions of release requested by the commonwealth. These state that Rose may not seek employment where children under 18 are the primary focus of the job; that he not seek employment with USA Cycling in any capacity before his case is resolved; that he have no contact of any kind with the alleged victims and a witness; and that he surrender his passport.
