Soccer Coach Indicted For Having Sex With 15 Year-Old Girl

CLEVELAND- Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason announced that Patrick Omiecinski

was indicted for having sex with a 15-year-old girl.

Omiecinski, 27, of Maple Heights, was an assistant soccer coach at Garfield Heights High

School. He had sex with a 15-year-old girl on two occasions in September 2006. The victim

was a member of the Garfield Heights High School women's soccer team. The principal of the

school reported the crime to the police.

Upon investigation by the school, Omiecinski was dismissed from his voluntary position as a

soccer coach and banned from Garfield Heights High School property and events.

"He stole this victim's trust and violated her," said Prosecutor Bill Mason. "He tarnished the

reputation of this team and the school and deserves to face justice for this crime."

He was indicted on three (3) counts of Sexual Battery, third degree felonies; and three (3) counts

of Unlawful Sexual Conduct with a Minor, third degree felonies. He faces a maximum sentence

of 30 years in prison.
