My best friend joined the Bally Total Fitness in Alexandria, VA on October 2008. She needed help with her fitness and assumed she bought the second best package they had. Along with the 3 year contract she was suckered into came a free personal training session. The FREE personal training session went great and he was a very knowledgeable trainer according to her. She didn't buy the personal training package that day but was considering it. A few weeks after joining this animal contacted my friend and told her he had a cancellation from one of his clients and asked if she wanted to take advantage of another personal training session. My friend agreed. That day she was brutally raped and sodomize by this monster. He was recently convicted and sentenced to 30 years on March 5, 2009. I was wondering if anyone knows if these employees get any criminal background checks? and what is the process?

    I'm very sorry about your friend...they never should have hired him. I'm glad he got 30 years though, even though it should have been more.

    that's very unfortunate. Most companies do the best they can to hire the best of the best. Most companies do background checks but i'm just curious to know was he a previous offender? if he was then you're right the should not have hired him but if he had no previous record how did they know this would happen?? anyone can do anything anytime even the most credible influences example, the professor That murdered the Clemson professor with no previous record. WE cant predict the future nor how people will change. I wish your friend the best.
