Coach arrested again after accusations of posing as teen girl to get photos of boys

Posted: Updated:
CABARRUS COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

A Cabarrus County middle school coach has been arrested again and hit with new federal child pornography charges.

Federal agents arrested Michael Osborne on Tuesday while he was in court for a hearing on charges from October.

Osborne worked as a grounds keeper and was a volunteer coach at a number of schools in Cabarrus and reportedly solicited nude photos of young boys by posing as 14-year-old girl.

A source close to the investigation says students at one of the places he worked, Northwest Middle School, were allegedly solicited online by Osborne.

Investigators told WBTV that there are multiple cases against Osborne and as many as six Concord area schools involved.

He was initially released on $150,000 bond, and was assigned a court appointed attorney.

A spokeswoman for Cabarrus County Schools says Osborne was fired several weeks ago.
