Former Swim Coach Convicted For Inappropriate Relationship

Posted: Updated:

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - A former high-school swim coach has been convicted of misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor for having sexual contact with a 17-year-old back in 2001.
    
Forty-year-old Noah Rucker of Bristow entered an Alford plea Wednesday in Fairfax County court. The plea means that Rucker admits there's enough evidence to convict him, but doesn't admit guilt.
    
Rucker was charged last year with three felony counts, related to accusations from a woman who came forward and said Rucker had sexual contact with her when she was a 17-year-old student at Madison high school. He was 29 at the time and a swim coach at the school.
    
The Washington Post reports that (http://wapo.st/WAFQHx) Rucker is expected to get a six-month sentence and a prohibition on coaching swimming.
