HOWELL, Mich. – A volunteer wrestling coach in Michigan was arrested after allegedly sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy.
Zack Jones, 21, is accused of raping a 13-year-old boy between June and September, FOX 2 Detroit reports.
Last year, Jones was a volunteer wrestling coach at a middle school in Howell, Michigan.
“All of our volunteers, teachers and staff members go through a criminal background check,” said Tom Gould of Howell Public Schools. “This individual’s background check came back clean.”
School officials are not sure if the alleged victim was a student at the school.
Before he was charged, Jones reportedly had a bad reputation because he allegedly faked cancer to get money.
According to FOX 2 Detroit, investigators say Jones faked having leukemia.
He allegedly took more than $8,000 in donations.
Jones is currently being held on a $2 million bond.
If convicted of first-degree sexual conduct, Jones could spend the rest of his life behind bars.
