CUDAHY — A Cudahy High School power lifting coach is facing four felony charges, accused of sending inappropriate photos and video to a girl, 17.
Kurt Wojciechowski, 45, of Cudahy faces four counts of exposing a child to harmful material.
According to a criminal complaint, “several people” reported concerns about Wojciechowski, a power lifting coach at Cudahy High School, and his attention to a girl, 17. The complaint says that student “minimized” her relationship with Wojciechowski, but ultimately admitted she had a key to his apartment “to pick things up” and she was never there when he was there.
Investigators took a look at her phone, which revealed Wojciechowski had sent her “numerous pictures of his naked body,” along with inappropriate videos.
Prosecutors say Wojciechowski admitted to sending some texts to the girl with the same screen name from which the inappropriate photos and videos were sent. He consented to a search of his phone, but it appeared he’d deleted all of his content.
The complaint makes reference to three images, sent on Feb. 7 and Feb. 26, and a video sent on Feb. 9.
District officials say they learned about the accusations on Feb. 26 and contacted police. The coach has been suspended while the incident is under investigation.
Wojciechowski is due to make his initial appearance in court on Tuesday, March 6.
