College swimming coach charged with child porn offense


Being arrested for any sexual crime can have a devastating snowball effect on a person's life. Simply being charged with this type of offense can ruin someone's reputation as well as their standing in the community. These charges can also severely disrupt their home life and they may lose their job. Recently, a successful Maryland college swimming coach has found himself in just this kind of situation.

The head swimming coach for Saint Mary's College has been arrested by the Maryland State Police. He has been charged with one count of possession of child pornography and one count of displaying obscene material to a minor. Police say that they made the arrest after conducting an investigation for several months in conjunction with the state of Illinois.

Authorities report that the inquiry began after police in Illinois received a report that a minor in the state was sexually exploited by a male subject who was over 18. An investigation suggested that indecent communications took place between the child and the adult through a social media website. After continued investigation, authorities suspected that the adult was a resident of Maryland. Illinois representatives then contacted the Maryland State Police.

Illinois authorities then say that they identified the coach as the suspect. Maryland State Police executed a search and seizure warrant at the home of the coach and state that they found several digital media storage devices that contained images of child pornography. The coach was then arrested and taken to the Calvert County Detention center for processing.

Being charged with a sexual crime can be a shocking and disturbing event. However, any Maryland resident who has been charged with sexual assault or an internet related sex crime may want to speak with a criminal defense attorney in order to find out the potential penalties for being convicted of a crime of this nature.
