LANDOVER, Md. (WUSA) -- A former soccer coach was found guilty on five counts of child sex abuse in Prince George's County on Friday, the State's Attorney said in a news release.
Charles Vasser, 35, of Seat Pleasant, faces 100 years in prison for sexually abusing a 15-year-old player on the soccer team he coached, at Riverdale Baptist School in Landover.
"From October 2008 through July of 2009, Vassar had an array of sexual contacts with the victim, who was 15 years old at the time the incidents started. Vasser's criminal sexual acts against the victim included sexual intercourse; digital penetration and kissing," officials said in a news release.
"While we take all crimes seriously, our community is especially devastated when a child is sexually abused at the hands of someone who seemed to be a trusted and responsible adult, explained State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks. "As a result of this important conviction, Mr. Vasser will have plenty of time to reflect on his terrible actions."
