Coach accused of possessing child pornography and of abusing teen

When you send your child to school, even when he or she is a teen, you want him or her to stay safe. It doesn't matter if a teacher is hard on your child, because that's the job the teacher has. It's a completely different story when a teacher is going beyond his or her business and affecting your child in a negative manner.

Sports teams do a lot of traveling, even at the high school level, so you may understand that teachers have to be there to chaperone. It would be strange to discover that a teacher was trying to stay in the same room as your child, though, and even worse if you knew he or she was trying to take advantage of your child.

In this case, that's exactly what some are claiming took place. A former volunteer basketball coach has been arrested for accusations of having child pornography in his home. He has also been accused of child abuse; he allegedly mentored a 16-year-old boy off campus, had forced him to take off his clothes and to wear a diaper.

The coach had also become suspicious to another when he had offered to share a room with a 16-year-old basketball player during an away game. Because of these allegations, the police became involved and an investigation began. During the investigation, child pornography was discovered on one of the man's electronic devices. A neighbor reported seeing children coming to and leaving the apartment often, but she didn't think it was unusual since the man was a coach at the local school.
