Valley swim coach accused of sexual conduct with minor

Posted

Maricopa County authorities are seeking more information on a swim coach who was arrested on suspicion of sexual abuse.

On April 3, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit arrested Nathan Moore, 43, a swim coach from institutions around the Valley, on charges of sexual abuse and sex conduct with a minor.

Mr. Moore was booked into the 4th Avenue Jail and in lieu of $100,000 bond.

The investigation began March 19 when District 4 Patrol Deputies were dispatched to meet with complainants who reported their daughter had recently disclosed she had been in a sexual relationship with Mr. Moore, according to a release.

MCSO said Mr. Moore’s relationship with the victim was reported to be sexual in nature, starting when the victim was 15 and ending at 17. The victim met Mr. Moore when she was a member of a swim team that he coached.

Detectives were later advised Mr. Moore was known to have coached at local gyms, high schools, community centers, and aquatic centers throughout the Valley.

Based upon the nature of the allegation, the case was forwarded to MCSO Special Victims Unit for further investigation.

MCSO believes there may be additional victims within Maricopa County. Anyone with further information should contact the Special Victim’s Unit at 602-876-1011.
