KNOX, Ind. (STMW) — Former Knox High School boys basketball coach Todd Boldry was arrested by Knox police Friday morning at Knox Middle School for two felony charges, child seduction and official misconduct.
Starke Circuit Court Judge Kim Hall set bond for Boldry, 39, at $100.000.
The charges filed against Boldry allege an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old student.
According to a probable cause affidavit in Starke Circuit Court, the encounter began in the fall of 2007, while the victim was a junior at Knox High School. Boldry is alleged to have contacted the girl through text messages and the pair began meeting in a training room at the school. Boldry also allegedly purchased a second cell phone with which he would contact the victim.
The inappropriate contact continued from 2007 through 2009, when the girl said she became pregnant. She gave birth to a son in May 2010, and since then a DNA test has indicated that Boldry is the father of the child.
Under Boldry as coach, the Knox Redskins won three sectional championships and a regional championship. He resigned after last year’s season.
