(KMOV) -- A Parkway West High School wrestling coach and teaching assistant is charged with statutory rape, statutory sodomy, and sexual contact.

Twenty-eight-year-old Jason Lewis, of O’Fallon, Missouri was charged on Wednesday.

 

The arrest came following an investigation into reports of alleged sexual misconduct by the coach against an underage girl in early 2010.

 

Lewis is charged with three counts of Statutory Rape, five counts of Statutory Sodomy, and three counts of Sexual Contact with a Student While on Public School Property.

Officials say it was a call into a district tip line on Monday that triggered the investigation by Chesterfield police.

 

He is being held on a $100,000 cash bond.

 

Lewis was not a teacher. He has worked for the Parkway School District since 2008.
