Former Coach Charged with Child Sexual Assault
11/27/2018- A former JV Volleyball Coach for Coleman High School is in court on multiple charges related to the sexual assault of a minor. 41-year-old Jason Nieminski of Pound is facing counts of Second-Degree Sexual Assault of a Child, Sexual Exploitation of a Child, and Possession of Child Pornography after being accused of having repeated sexual contact with a high school girl from October 2017 through July of 2018. Local authorities were alerted to the alleged activity by a cyber tip from the Wisconsin DOJ Department of Criminal Investigation when some of Nieminski’s Facebook Messenger exchanges with the victim were flagged for inappropriate content. Nieminski has pleaded not guilty to all the charges against him and has been bound over for trial. A status conference in the matter has now been scheduled for January 23rd. Records show the Coleman School District officially accepted Nieminski’s resignation as coach in February of 2018.
