Netease Sports reported on October 3:
According to the arrest warrant obtained by the Canadian "News" in the Montreal court, Richard Gautier, a world-class figure skating coach, was accused of imposing punishment on underage male athletes.
There were three accusations against Gautier, concentrated in the period from 1981 to 1985, including three accusations of sexual assault, gross indecency, and violence. The victim was a man codenamed "PD". Learning to skate, he was only in his early ten years old and was one of his earliest students.
On Wednesday, the police issued an arrest warrant against Gautier, and if all goes well, he will appear in court for trial in a few days. The police have also begun to check whether there are other victims.
Gautier is a top coach in the field of pair skating. In January 2017, at an official ceremony held in Ottawa, he celebrated his 55th birthday and was also inducted into the Figure Skating Hall of Fame.
Gautier had a long-term cooperation with Serra/Peltier, the double skating gold medalist at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, helping the latter to reach a career high and win the 2001 world championship, but Serra/Peltier was in Parted ways with him shortly before the Winter Olympics.

近年来，他的主要成就是执教2015年和2016年世界冠军杜哈默（Duhamel / Radford），但在冬季奥运会前，他也与两人分手。后者于2018年在平昌举行。冬季奥运会获得了双人滑铜牌。
