CJ women’s basketball coach arrested on obscenity charges
May 6, 2009
DAYTON DEANERY — Marc N. Greenberg, the girls’ basketball coach at Chaminade Julienne High School in Dayton, was arrested by federal authorities May 4 at his Kettering law office on 12 obscenity charges.
He is accused of using work and home computers to engage in graphic sexual conversation and to transmit obscene images. The complaint involves underage females.
A resident of Centerville, Greenberg, 32, was being held without bail until a detention hearing scheduled for May 7.
The charges against Greenberg do not allege any illegal conduct by him in his role as the Chaminade Julienne girls’ basketball coach. FBI investigators and Dayton police have interviewed students at CJ, and school president Dan Meixner says the school “has no reason to believe” that any CJ students have been victims.
“The FBI and Dayton police indicated that the information came to them from undercover officers in other jurisdictions outside Ohio,” Meixner said in a prepared statement.
CJ players and some of their parents participated in a special prayer service at the school after they were informed of the arrest.
“We are shocked (by) the news,” Meixner said. “We are saddened and troubled in knowing that our students and families — and community — are in a position to experience, at the very least, broken trust with an adult who was in a position to mentor students at our school.”
He said that school administrators and guidance counselors “are working with members of the girls’ team and their families in offering open communication, support, assistance and personal counsel through this difficult situation.”
Greenberg, who is married and the father of three, has been involved with the girls’ basketball team since 1996. He is a 1999 graduate of the University of Dayton graduated from UD’s law school in 2003.
