LORAIN COUNTY, Ohio (WOIO) - A former Lake Ridge Academy coach and volunteer convicted of six counts of sexual battery was sentenced Monday to four years in prison by Lorain County Court of Common Pleas Judge Mark Betleski.


Jason Dimacchia, 39, sexually assaulted a student in January 2021.

School officials learned of the crime in May 2021 and immediately contacted North Ridgeville police.

Dimacchia last served as a paid assistant volleyball coach during the 2017-2018 school year.

School officials said he also underwent a background check during his hiring process.
