MANITOWOC, Wis. (WITI) -- Felony charges were filed Monday, March 4 against a Manitowoc cheerleading coach accused of sexting a teenager and trying to set up a meeting for sex.
Eric Fisher, 29, faces 11 charges:
Use of a computer to facilitate a child sex crime
Solicit intimate representation from minor: four counts
Expose child to harmful material: six counts
According to WLUK, the investigation began in mid-February when a juvenile student told a school resource officer that Fisher, her previous cheer and dance coach, sent her inappropriate messages on social media. Deputies soon recommended charges.
Fisher was arrested on Feb. 27 after prosecutors said he met with an investigator who posed as a 15-year-old girl for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity.
Fisher was employed by Galaxy All-Star Cheerleading in Manitowoc.
Manitowoc County sheriff’s officials said the investigation was ongoing, and they were attempting to determine whether there were any additional victims.
