Increasing investigations into sexual abuse involving popular youth soccer coaches in Calvert County are currently positive for a total of 12 whistleblowers.
First two men came forward and said their former coach Moshe Imel had abused them for years when they were children of a youth football program. After being arrested, a teenager came forward.
Police said the nine new whistleblowers were also children when they said they had been abused and had the courage to move forward.
Imel’s family strongly denies that claim. They said he had helped many young soccer players over the years, and his son called his father on the phone, saying that his father was “never abused” and “a wonderful person.”
Imel has been teaching the Pataxent Renos Youth Soccer Program on and off in Upper Marlboro for over a decade and was a volunteer coach for Junior Varsity Football at the Northern High School in Calvert County in 2016.
Police have not confirmed whether he has been abused while teaching these programs.

The coach has not been charged in connection with these nine new whistleblowers. The sheriff’s office said they were just beginning to investigate those claims.
Imel is held in $ 500,000 in bonds.
