Ex-High School Coach Guilty In Teen Sex Case 8-30-2010

A former Owendale-Gagetown softball coach accused of having sex with an underage girl on his team has been found guilty by a Tuscola County jury.
Cory D. Fritz, 27, of Sebewaing, was ruled guilty Monday after a three-day trial on five counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
It took a jury of 11 women and one man four hours of deliberation to reach a verdict.
Tuscola County Prosecutor Mark Reene had charged Frtiz with 20 counts.
During testimony, the team member, who was 14 years old at the time, admitted to becoming pregnant while having a relationship with Fritz during her sophomore year at Owendale-Gagetown between the summer of 2005 and the spring of 2006.
She also said that Fritz helped her dispose of the baby's body, but the defense questioned the existence of the baby.
Neither Fritz nor the student, who is now 19 years old, have been charged in connection with the death of the child.
Fritz will spend at least one year in jail, but could see between 5 and 15 years when sentenced on Oct. 18.
Defense lawyer Kevin Rieman said Fritz is disappointed with the verdict.
