WESTBROOK — Jeremy Link has pleaded not guilty to charges of sexually abusing a minor.

The former gymnastics coach appeared at Cumberland County Unified Criminal Court July 6 after being indicted in June on three counts of sexual abuse of a minor, a Class C felony. As of Tuesday, the court had yet to set a date for Link’s dispositional conference.

Link, 43, of York Street in Kennebunk, was arrested April 22 by Westbrook Police at the Elite All-Stars of Maine Cheer Gym at 73 Bradley Drive. He was accused of abusing a 14-year-old girl at the facility, where he is no longer employed.

According to Tamara Getchell, the Cumberland County business and communications coordinator, Link’s bail, which was set at his first court appearance in April, has remained at $15,000 cash or $100,000 secured bond. Link remains at Cumberland County Jail, where he has been since the April arrest.
