CALVERT CO. FOOTBALL COACH CHARGED FOR CHILD SEX ABUSE
March 20, 2021
A youth football coach in Calvert County, Maryland, has been charged with four counts of child sex abuse, and the county’s sheriff’s office believe there may be additional victims.
Moshe Michael Imel, 50, of Owings, is being held without bond following his arrest on Friday. He was taken into custody after the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office said two victims stepped forward accusing him of past sexual abuse.
The charges date back to 2012, according to the Sheriff’s Office, which went on to say the offenses may have been going on as far back as 2009.
Imel was a coach for the Patuxent Rhinos in the Greater Metropolitan Youth Football League. Court documents indicate he is eligible for a public defender.
