Catholic school coach arraigned on sex charges

SOUTH PHILADELPHIA - September 22, 2011

Thirty-seven-year-old Louis Spadaccini was arraigned early Thursday on charges including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse involving a 13-year-old boy.

Spadaccini was charged earlier in the week with endangerment and corruption of a minor after police say he plied a 14-year-old student at the school with alcohol and a Xanax-spiked drink.

Spadaccini has been suspended from his part-time coaching job and his position as a court crier.

It was not immediately clear if Spadaccini had an attorney.

The Neumann-Goretti High School coach was ordered held on $2 million bail.
