A convicted sex offender is currently coaching children at the Team Vision Dojo in Orlando, Florida. Chasyn Rance, 39, was found guilty in 2011 of having sex with an adolescent. Rance was charged with Lewd or Lascivious Battery of a victim between the ages of 12 and 15 and has been registered on the Florida Sex Offender Registry since 2014.
Photos circulating on Twitter of Rance posing with his 16-year-old student posted by Team Vision Dojo prompted backlash from concerned users. Bodyslam.net, a website for wrestling fans, covered the story last week in an article titled "Registered Sex Offender Chasyn Rance Teaming With 16 Year Old Trainee."
As a result, the dojo issued a statement to Bodyslam.net defending Rance:
"Hello. Chasyn Rance was deemed guilty in the court of law in 2011 for actions that took place in 2008. During his time on probation, Chasyn was in therapy, not allowed to interact with minors, and had to submit to drug testing. Chasyn completed everything that was required by law and then went back to training minors again sharing full knowledge of his past with parents. Chasyn continues to be one of the best trainers in professional wrestling around and there’s no denying that. While the actions of the past look very bad, the future looks bright for all those that Chasyn continues to help. Thank you for any concerns. Everyone at Team Vision Dojo is doing great and have many big projects continuing and others in the works. If you would like to contact Chasyn regarding anything else or other false accusations that this website has promoted in the past that was debunked, feel free to contact him at: email@example.com"
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement's sex offender registry describes "Lewd or Lascivious Battery; Sex With Victim 12 To 15," the crime Rance is charged with, as a person who "engages in sexual activity with a person 12 years of age or older but less than 16 years of age," and defines "sexual activity" as "the oral, anal, or vaginal penetration by, or union with, the sexual organ of another or the anal or vaginal penetration of another by any other object; however, sexual activity does not include an act done for a bona fide medical purpose."
Popular social media account Libs of TikTok, while currently suspended on Twitter, is still active in reporting predatory behavior from adults on substack. Libs of TikTok wrote, "Previously, Rance was not legally allowed to be around minors but now he can pretzel twist with them in an innocent wrestling coaching session."
