Ex-coach arrested on sex counts

August 18, 2018

A former Wawasee Middle School and High School wrestling coach was arrested Friday, accused of sexual misconduct with a female student nearly five years ago, Indiana State Police said.

Joshua M. Vallejo, 29, of Warsaw is accused of having sexual contact with the girl between November 2013 and February 2014. The girl was attending the middle school where he was the wrestling coach, state police said.

Vallejo was being held at the Kosciusko County Jail in lieu of $25,250 bail, the sheriff’s department said.

State police said they started the investigation in March after a report was filed. The circumstances of the delayed reporting are the subject of a separate and ongoing state police investigation. That information will be forwarded to the Kosciusko County prosecutor’s office when completed, police said.

Vallejo was charged with sexual misconduct with a minor and child solicitation, both felonies.
