Former Soccer Coach Sentence Suspended in Minor Solicitation Case

Posted: Updated:

A former soccer coach charged with soliciting a minor over the internet has avoided serious time in prison.

A judge sentenced 22-year-old Matthew Sachs on Monday to three years in prison for each of two counts. Both sentences were suspended, but he will be on supervised probation during that time.

He pleaded guilty to the charges in Page County Circuit Court back in July. Sachs is a former coach for the Charlottesville-Albemarle Soccer Organization.

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