Henry Germain, the 62-year-old former Castlewood Country Club tennis pro, appeared in court Tuesday and entered a no contest plea.
According to Deputy District Attorney Susan Torrance, he was charged with three counts of child molestation and will be sentenced to 15 years in state prison. He will be eligible for parole after serving 85 percent of his sentence.
The Dublin resident, who is currently still out on bail, must also pay restitution to his victims and register as a sex offender. A formal sentencing will take place May 27 in Department 513 at the Alameda Superior Courthouse in Hayward.
Reports show there were 16 total victims, but only six were able to go through with charges. The other 10 were willing to testify against Germain, but their statements could not lead to charges as they were limited by California's statute of limitations, which currently allows victims 10 years to come forward. Investigators said some victims were from Southern California where Germain worked at the now closed Desert Club of La Quinta in Palm Desert in the early 1980s.
Germain was first arrested Sept. 2 and was held on $1.14-million bail. He plead not guilty Jan. 9 to 16 charges of sex crimes against six female victims. From the beginning, his attorney Elizabeth Grossman of Berkeley said she believed some of the charges to be illegitimate due to the statute of limitations.
