INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A suburban Indianapolis swim coach is facing federal charges alleging he shot video of himself having sex with one of his athletes.

Prosecutors said Thursday that 29-year-old John C. Goelz has been charged with sexual exploitation of a minor and possession of child pornography. He allegedly had a sexual relationship since February with a girl he coached at the Carmel Swim Club and on the Carmel High School swim team. Goelz is a volunteer assistant coach for the school swim team.

Prosecutors say investigators learned of the relationship on June 29 and arrested Goelz on Tuesday. They believe he had sex with the girl at parks, at his home and at an Anderson hotel where he shot video of them having sex.

Goelz's attorneys declined to comment on the charges.
