A former Conrad Weiser High School coach accused of having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl was handcuffed and taken to Berks County Prison today after allegedly violating an order for the second time in less than a month that he not contact the girl.
Benjamin J. Stopper, 31, of the 200 block of Longview Drive, South Heidelberg Township, is charged with having sexual contact with a child and corrupting a minor.
Stopper’s original bail set at $20,000 on Aug. 16, but Judge Thomas G. Parisi raised his bail to $100,000 on Sept. 11 after prosecutors alleged Stopper had contact with the girl against Parisi’s orders. Stopper’s family posted 10 percent of the bail, and Stopper was released.
