Former soccer coach indicted on child sex-related charges


DAYTON — A former youth soccer coach supposed to go on trial Monday was indicted on two more child sex charges.

Justin K. Smith, 41, of Germantown, now faces additional charges of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and sexual battery, according to a Montgomery County grand jury report.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday, said Greg Flannagan, spokesman for the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.

His trial is no longer on the docket for next week following his May 18 indictment on two counts each of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, sexual battery, and sexual imposition.

Smith remains free on an own-recognizance bond.

Prosecutors have said the charges involve a 14-year-old girl Smith coached through the Southwest Soccer Club. At the time of his May arrest, Smith acted as club president.

It is not clear whether the new charges involve the same girl.

Smith, an employee of the Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services, remains on administrative leave from his job, prosecutors said.
