Md. Soccer Coach Pleads Guilty In Child Porn Case

BALTIMORE (AP) — A former youth soccer coach from Hagerstown faces 15 to 30 years in prison for producing child pornography.

Roger Repp, 45, pleaded guilty Friday to one count of the offense for using a hidden camera to make pictures and video of a 13-year-old girl dressing, undressing, bathing and using the bathroom.

In return for his plea, prosecutors dropped seven other counts, including allegations that Repp distributed child pornography.

He allegedly made the images from December 2010 through April 2011, when he was a coach with the Locomotive FC soccer club. He was removed as a coach after the allegations surfaced.

Repp told investigators he had never had sex with a child but liked looking at child porn.

    It breaks my heart every time I read a story like this. We are very involved with youth sports and you would think that would be one of the safest places to send your kids to participate in team sports.

    How in the world can parents trust any more?
