BOULDER, Colo. (KDVR) — The Colorado District Attorney’s Office says a former Boulder swim coach has been arrested on multiple charges of sexual assault on a child.
Jon Michael Beber was arrested on July 14 on three charges of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust.
The district attorney’s office said Beber was a coach for the Boulder swimming club team from 1997 to 2002.
It is alleged that Beber had inappropriate sexual contact with multiple underage swimmers from the swim team during that time period.
Beber left the team as swim coach in 2002 when allegations of inappropriate behavior surfaced.
The district attorney’s office said Beber has also coached swim teams in New York, Florida, and Georgia.
Beber is currently in Georgia awaiting extradition back to Colorado.
District Attorney Michael Dougherty stated, “We strongly encourage individuals with information to contact the District Attorney’s Office. Our Sex Crimes Unit is handling this case and is available to speak with anyone with information.”
