Montgomery County Swim Coach Arrested For Alleged Sex Offenses

Montgomery County Police have arrested a swim coach they say committed sex offenses against an underage girl he was coaching.

Fifty-two-year-old Christopher Huott of Fulton was arrested Thursday. He is charged with sex offenses and child abuse and is being held on $50,000 bond. Online court records do not list a lawyer for Huott.

Police say the alleged victim told detectives last month that Huott had engaged her in sex acts while she was a minor. Officers say she Huott, who owns the Maryland Suburban Swim Club in Laurel, was her coach during that time.
