A Conrad Weiser High School athletics coach was charged by state police late Friday night with having sex with a 16-year-old girl he coached.
Troopers said they arrested Benjamin J. Stopper at his South Heidelberg Township home at about 9:15 p.m. He was awaiting arraignment in Reading Central Court late Friday night.
Stopper, 31, of the 200 block of Longview Drive had a three-month-long sexual relationship with the girl, troopers said. He would meet her at his house and her home, give her rides home from practice and even took her along on a business trip to Philadelphia.
Troopers said they contacted school officials late Friday night to let them know about the charges.
