39-year-old Jeremy Tudela was arrested on Wednesday and booked in the Vanderburgh County Jail for a preliminary charge of child molestation. He appeared in court Thursday and was given no bond. After his appearance in court on Monday, the judge did not make a decision on a bond.
Tudela owned Tudela Soccer Academy in Newburgh. His arrest comes after a young victim reported the abuse to Holly's House.
Tudela was previously arrested in 2019 and charged with multiple counts of child seduction, after being accused of having sexual contact with an underage soccer student.
He pleaded guilty back then and received a 4-year sentence including one year in prison. He also received two years on home detention with an electronic monitoring device and one-year probation.
At the hearing, the judge stated that she will take his attorney's request for bond under advisement and make the decision later on Monday evening.
He's expected back in court on December 17th.
Local child and adult victim advocacy center Holly’s House encourages people to speak up and say something if a child or adult discloses abuse of any kind.
