Former North Carolina coach accused of sex offenses

Coaches often spend time with students outside the normal confines of the classroom. In some cases, a student's encounters with his or her coach could be misconstrued to an outside observer. Unfortunately, a coach in North Carolina has now been accused of multiple sex offenses.

The man was already in jail when he recently appeared in court to face additional charges. These charges involve two counts of indecent liberties with a child stemming from incidents that allegedly occurred in 2003 and 2015. He is also accused of statutory rape as a result of incidents claimed to have happened in 2007. If convicted of the charges, he could spend the rest of his life in prison.

Unfortunately, there are some indications that his legal problems may increase. Since initial charges were announced, the police department claims that they have been inundated with calls from people claiming they were also victims. Police say they set up a hotline just for those claiming to be a victim of the coach and have dedicated multiple detectives to taking the calls. It is unclear why police initially suspected the man of such crimes.

Those facing accusations of sex offenses in North Carolina are often left to make important decisions about their cases -- decisions that will likely impact the rest of their lives. Because most people facing charges are unfamiliar with the courts and their procedures, they often seek the guidance of an experienced defense attorney. With their help, defendants are better equipped to make informed decisions about their cases.
