The coach, Brandon Fenzel, allegedly asked a 15-year-old male student to send him explicit photographs in exchange for marijuana, the Oakland Press reports. According to police, in addition to working as a coach, Fenzel works as a teacher for Orchard Lake St. Mary’s Preparatory School in Orchard Lake. The staff directory lists Fenzel as a teacher in the theology department.
On June 15, Fenzel was arrested and charged with four counts of child sexually abusive activity and four counts of computer/internet — communicating with another to commit a crime. A few days later, on June 18, police say Fenzel was arraigned before Honorable Judge Mark Somers of the 19th District Court, and his bond was set at $500,000.
In a statement, Dearborn Police Chief Issa Shahin said, "After being made aware of the allegations, investigators worked swiftly to gather evidence and apprehend this individual to safeguard our youth."
