wrestling coach

David Veccharino, a high school wrestling coach in Rhode Island has been charged with five counts of child pornography possession after a girl contacted police when she began receiving strange text messages of a sexual nature from an unknown number.

When police traced the number back to Veccharino, they were able to obtain a search warrant where they confiscated Veccharino’s phone and searched his home. According to the police report, five videos of underage males engaging in sexual acts were discovered in the wrestling coach’s possession. Police also believe that Veccharino appears in at least one of the pornographic videos.

Veccharino, who also served as the assistant football coach at Tolman High School in Pawtucket, was fired from both positions after his arrest. The school is said to be cooperating with police as the investigation continues.
