A man who pleaded guilty to charges of child seduction back in 2020 was arrested on Wednesday on the preliminary charge of Child Molestation.
39-year-old Jeremy Tudela was booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail on Wednesday afternoon on the Child Molestation charge. He was arrested after a young victim reported the abuse and was interviewed at Holly's House.
Tudela, who owned Tudela Soccer Academy in Newburgh, was previously arrested back in 2019 and charged with multiple counts of Child Seduction after being accused of having sexual contact with one of his soccer students who was under the age of 16.
In that case, Tudela pled guilty as charged and received a four-year sentence of one year in prison, two years on home detention with an electronic monitoring device, and one year probation.
Following his arrest on Wednesday, Tudela appeared in court for his initial hearing Thursday morning.
The judge on the case recommended that he continue to be held in the county jail on no bond until his next hearing on Monday at 2:00 p.m.
