Former Curl Burke swim coach Noah Rucker has been indicted by a Grand Jury in Fairfax County, Virginia on three felony counts of “indecent liberties with a child while in a custodial or supervisorial relationship.” His Grand Jury hearing was on Monday, and a date for the beginning of his trial will be set on Thursday.
Rucker has been accused of having sex with a 17-year old swimmer on the Madison High School Swim Team roughly a decade ago, before he was affiliated with the Curl Burke Swim Club. Rucker was arrested in early June.
An indictment by a Grand Jury doesn’t imply one’s guilt (that will be determined when the trial begins). In Virginia, all felonies require a grand jury. They effectively determine if there is probable cause to proceed with a trial.
