Swim coach faces charges of sex with underage athlete

Swim coach has sex with teen girl repeatedly over a period of several months: Cops

A swim coach in North Carolina is in police custody facing a litany of charges related to allegations that he repeatedly had sex with a 15-year-old girl between the beginning of August and this week.

WTVD, 43-year-old Nathan Weddle has been Capital Area Swim Team’s head coach for the past several years. The victim was one of the members of that team, authorities say.

Reports indicate the encounters began on August 1. He faces a total of 13 counts of taking indecent liberties with a child and related statutory sex offenses.

That last alleged criminal act occurred as late as Wednesday, according to authorities.

During a preliminary court appearance Friday, Weddle requested the services of a court-appointed attorney. He was ordered to submit a DNA sample and was jailed with bond set at $5 million.
