Shipley Coach Charged With Student Affair

A coach at a suburban Philadelphia private school is charged with having an inappropriate relationship with one of his players.

The Times Herald of Norristown reports 50-year-old James Civello was charged earlier this month with corruption of minors and endangering the welfare of a child.

Investigators say Civello had sexual contact with a 16-year-old girl on the squash team at the Shipley School. The alleged victim told police the relationship began in April.

Civello, of Upper Black Eddy, Bucks County, is jailed at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Online court records do not list an attorney for him.

A phone message left for a spokeswoman at the Bryn Mawr school was not immediately returned Wednesday.
