Sex charges against former Bay High basketball coach

BAY VILLAGE, OH (WOIO) - We're uncovering more about sex charges just filed against Kevin Fillinger, a man accused of sexually assaulting teen girls as he coached basketball at Bay High in Bay Village.

Cuyahoga County prosecutors just indicted Fillinger. Investigators say he sexually assaulted a Bay High female student, molested a teen girl he met at the Fairview Park recreational center, and had dirty pictures in his phone.

Fillinger worked as the boys JV basketball coach and he worked for the Fairview Park recreational center. He no longer holds either job.

The case came to light when the Bay High principal heard Fillinger had been sending inappropriate messages to teen girls at the school.

19 Action News went to Fillinger's home. Another man answered the door and immediately shut it.
