Hearing for former lacrosse coach continued
The preliminary hearing for a former Lansdale Catholic High School lacrosse coach accused of making “deliberate” false accusations that officials with the school had committed sexual misconduct — originally scheduled for Wednesday in Horsham — has been continued, according to the office of District Judge Harry Nesbitt.
A new preliminary hearing in the case against Tim Udinski, of Doylestown, has been scheduled for Aug. 2V at 11W15 a.m., according to 1HVbLWW’V RIfiFH.
A court employee provided no reason for the continuance.
Udinski, 43, faces six misdemeanor charges, including four counts of stalking and two counts of harassment, according to information posted on Pennsylvania’s UnLfiHd -udLFLDO 6yVWHP wHb portal.
District Judge Harold Borek’s recusal from the case caused its transfer to Nesbitt’s court.
According to a news re- lease from the Montgomery County District Attorney’s RIfiFH, UdLnVNL “dHOLbHUDWHly” made false accusations WKDW RIfiFLDOV wLWK WKH VFKRRO had committed sexual misconduct.
Between Oct. 1V, 2011, and May 31, 2012, on seven separate occasions, Udinski allegedly sent false claims of sexual abuse in anonymous emails to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, according to the DA’s RIfiFH.
Authorities claim that in these emails, Udinski claimed that both the Lansdale Catholic football and lacrosse coaches were engaged in sexual solicitation of players on their respective teams. Udinski also accused the Lansdale Catholic principal of “failing to take any action regarding the alleged misconduct,” according to the press release.
Udinski formerly worked as the head lacrosse coach at the Catholic school and was “the target of unfounded accusations” himself, according to the release.
