Scott Spear, 47, has been arrested and charged with two counts of committing a fourth-degree sex offense.
A longtime middle school teacher and high school basketball and track coach in Montgomery County is under arrest for having sex with an underage student athlete.
Scott Duane Spear, 47, is accused of having sex on at least two occasions last year with a 16-year-old girl he coached at Richard Montgomery High School. Court documents reveal Spear taught the student when she was in middle school and then became her track coach in 2009.
The teacher and coach communicated in person and on cell phones during school and after school hours. That contact became sexual after Spear allegedly invited the girl to go out in spring of 2011 and took her to a Rockville home where they engaged in sex.
Shortly after, the girl told an unidentified person about her relationship with an older man. Late last year, the girl revealed the man's identity.
The coach has been charged with two counts of committing a fourth degree sexual offense. Parents of students who may have come into contact with Spear during his 18 years of teaching and coaching have been contacted by police.
