Sunnyvale, California - Matt Reza Montana 61, a former tennis instructor in Sunnyvale is facing 31 counts, a majority being lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 in addition to a single charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child. His victims are two underage sisters according to the city officials and prosecutors.
He appeared at the Palo Alto Courthouse on Wednesday morning December 14 and he did not enter a plea. He's scheduled to return to court on January 11, 2017 according to Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Pinaki Chakravorty.
Chakravorty said that the alleged molestation by Montana was exposed when one of the victims told a friend about what happened and the friend told her own mother. The friend's mother then told the victim's mother, who decided to have her daughter see a therapist, who encouraged the victim to talk with law enforcement.
Montana gave tennis lessons to the first victim one to three times a week and was allegedly abused between 2006 and 2013, according to Chakravorty. One charge was filed on behalf of the second victim, the first victim's sister, who was allegedly abused from 2009 to 2011.
According to city officials, Montana is a registered sex offender previously convicted of sexual battery in 1996, when he was sentenced to three years of probation and a year in jail. Montana failed to inform his employer BG Tennis, Sunnyvale's contractor for its tennis programs, that he was registered as a sex offender as required by law, city officials said.
