Former college soccer coach indicted on child sex charges

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - Former Catawba College soccer coach Ralph Wager was indicted on Monday by a Rowan County grand jury.

Wager, 69, is charged with three counts each of indecent liberties with a child, crime against nature, and first degree sex offense.

Wager was arrested on July 17 at his town home in Charlotte.  He had been running a soccer camp in the Steele Creek area since resigning from Catawba in 1990.

The alleged victim, between 9 and 12 years old at the time of the reported crime in 1987, came forward after reading on the internet recently that Wager was still coaching children.
