Former Soccer Coach Pleads Guilty to 2 Counts of Soliciting Minor

Posted: Updated:

A former coach in the Soccer Organization of Charlottesville - Albemarle (SOCA) has pleaded guilty to two counts of soliciting a minor by computer.

Twenty-two-year-old Matthew Sachs entered the plea in Page County Circuit Court Wednesday.

Investigators say Sachs was arrested after a 14-year-old girl he thought he was chatting with online, turned out to be an officer.

Sachs originally faced four felonies - instead, he pleaded guilty to two counts of solicitation. Each count carries a maximum 10-year sentence.

Sachs is scheduled for sentencing September 24.
