Oregon youth basketball coach charged with sexual abuse
HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) — A youth basketball coach in Beaverton has been accused of sexually abusing a minor.
Court records show 34-year-old Laurence Metz was indicted in late September on charges of second-degree sexual abuse. The indictment was sealed until after his arrest this month.
Metz pleaded not guilty and posted bail.
Metz coaches at a Beaverton athletic club and runs a basketball academy.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says the coach befriended a family through his work, and the alleged victim was a girl from that family.
