CENTERVILLE, Ohio -- A volleyball coach from Cincinnati has been arrested for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old Centerville girl, police said.
Joshua C. Fisher, 29, was the head coach of the Lakota East girls' junior varsity team for two seasons. He has been removed from further contact with students, Lakota Schools spokesman Randy Oppenheimer said Monday.
The district had no other comment.
Fisher, who was self-employed as a volleyball instructor, also coached the Cincy Classics Volleyball Club for three years and has been removed from that position.
The director of the Cincy Classics said they had no reason to believe Fisher acted inappropriately with any of their players. Al Royse posted a letter to parents on the club’s website.
Fisher is in the Montgomery County Jail facing five counts of sexual battery and one count of sexual imposition.
Centerville police said the contact with the teenager happened in his car at a variety of locations in Centerville in September and October, but reports didn’t reach police until last Thursday.
Officers arrested Fisher on Friday at his Cincinnati home.
"This is one of those things that you don't let sit. It's very important we have to make sure that we got this person in custody as quickly as possible," said Centerville officer John Davis.
Fisher’s case will go before the Montgomery County Grand Jury in a few weeks.
