A 27-year-old former assistant high school soccer coach was indicted today on charges accusing him of having sex with a 15-year-old girl.
Patrick Omiecinski, 27, of Maple Heights, was an assistant soccer coach at Garfield Heights High. He is accused of twice having sex with a member of the girl's soccer team, according to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's office. The incidents are said to have happened last September.
The principal of the school reported the crime to the police, and upon investigation by the school, Omiecinski was dismissed from his voluntary position as a soccer coach and banned from the school, officials said.
Omiecinski is charged with sexual battery and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
