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.
