ONSLOW CO., NC (WECT) - A former assistant soccer coach at Ashley High School in Wilmington is charged with more sex crimes against a student and player.
Brian Reardon, 24, turned himself into the Onslow County Sheriff's Office Thursday. He's accused of having a sexual relationship with a female student and soccer player at the time he was employed at Ashley High School.

- Two Counts: Sexual offense with a student
- Two Counts: Indecent liberties with a student
- Two Counts: Crime against nature
- Two Counts: Contributing to the delinquency of a minor
He first appearance in court Friday, June 25, where his case was continued until July 15.
