Former volleyball coach arrested for child sex abuse

An Upper Marlboro, Md., man has been charged with sex abuse of a minor and other charges in both Howard and Anne Arundel Counties. 

Marc Stephen Moore, Jr., 46, of Old Burton Circle in Upper Marlboro, is being held at the Howard County Detention Center without bond after an investigation stemming from the reported abuse of a 16-year-old girl at the Maryland Junior Sports Center in Jessup, Md.

Investigators say the girl reported Moore abused her when he was her volleyball coach, touching her inappropriately and asking her for nude photos that he then kept. The girl also said Moore performed similar acts at a residence in Anne Arundel County. 

Howard County detectives informed Anne Arundel police of the allegations, who then charged Moore with multiple counts of sex abuse of a minor, solicitation of a minor, fourth-degree sex offenses, distribution and possession of child pornography. Howard County's investigation yielded similar charges. 

Both jurisdictions are urging anyone with information or who may have been victimized by Moore to contact the Howard County Police Department at 410-313-STOP (410-313-7867) or HCPDcrimetips@howardcountymd.gov, or the Anne Arundel Police Department at 410-222-4733.
