Area coach being investigated

Law enforcement has confirmed there is an investigation involving an area coach after allegations of inappropriate behavior were made.

Ste. Genevieve Police Chief Eric Bennett confirmed they did take a report and they are investigating an incident at the school, but they don’t have any information they can release at this time.

The Daily Journal contacted the Ste. Genevieve R-II School District and Assistant Superintendent Julie Flieg said they can not discuss or release information regarding personnel issues.

No one would confirm nor deny the type of allegations that were made, but according to sources it may involve misconduct with a student. The school wouldn’t comment if the coach was suspended while an investigation was being conducted.
