(Akron) The Omaha World Herald says a judge this week dismissed sex charges against Chad Utesch, former wrestling coach at Akron-Westfield.
Those charges included; one county of sexual exploitation by a school employee and several misdemeanor counts of the same charge.
The judge ruled that Utesch didn’t meet the statutory definition of a school employee at the time of the alleged offenses because he did not have valid coaching authorization.
The Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office said Utesch had inappropriate contact with a 17-year-old female student.
