Two LaPorte High School employees accused of not reporting a volleyball coach's sexual activity with a player now face two Class B misdemeanor charges.
Girls volleyball head coach Mary Beth Lebo and the school’s athletic director Ed Gilliland will be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. Sept. 26 before Judge Jennifer Koethe in LaPorte County Superior Court 3.
LaPorte County Prosecutor Bob Szilagyi said the charges allege that Lebo and Gilliland failed to report child abuse or neglect despite having knowledge of such acts by Bob Ashcraft, who had been an assistant junior varsity girls volleyball coach at the school.
Ashcraft, 46, was convicted in July of engaging in sexual activity in 2008 with a then 15-year old female player. He received a 21-year prison sentence.
