Police: Mechanicsburg coach had sexual encounters with student

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A former coach at Mechanicsburg Area Senior High School has been arrested after he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student, police said.

Frank Hoy, 22, of Mechanicsburg, was charged Tuesday with felony counts of institutional sexual assault and corruption of minors. He was released on $35,000 unsecured bail.

Mechanicsburg police said an investigation began Sept. 23 when school administrators notified them of a possible sexual relationship between Hoy and a student. During the investigation, it was confirmed that Hoy had sexual encounters with the student.

Hoy was a part-time assistant coach of the girls’ volleyball team. A district spokeswoman said his employment was suspended immediately in September and he has since resigned his position.

Police said he has been a coach with several other teams and assisted at clinics and camps throughout central Pennsylvania. Anyone with additional information should call Detective Keith Anthony at 717-691-3300.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 6.
