Noah Rucker, a former coach at Madison High School in Vienna, was indicted by a grand jury on Monday.
Rucker was charged with three felony accounts of “indecent liberties with a child while in a custodial or supervisory relationship” in June for allegedly having sex with a 17-year-old girl on the varsity swim team at Madison on at least five occasions in 2001, starting in November and lasting into
the high school swim season. Rucker was 29 at the time.
A trial date will be set tomorrow by the Fairfax County Circuit Court.
Most recently, Rucker coached for the Curl-Burke Swim Club (CUBU), but was removed prior to being arrested in June. The swim club, which announced the change of its name to the Nation’s Capital Swim Club (NCAP) yesterday, also received news that former head coach, Rick Curl, had received a lifetime ban on Wednesday from USA Swimming for an alleged sexual relationship with an under aged swimmer in the 1980s. Rucker was suspended by USA Swimming in an emergency hearing in July.
