Former Astoria wrestling coach accused of rape
Allegedly had sexual relationship with underage girl
Astoria Police arrested Greg S. Medina, 42, at Beaverton High School, where he currently works as an instructional assistant and wrestling coach. He was indicted by a Clatsop County grand jury last week for third-degree rape.
Earlier this month, a woman reported to police that she had a sexual relationship with Medina while he was still working at the school in February 2005, when she was 15 years old.
The report indicates the relationship was not formed on school grounds or as a result of Medina’s employment, Deputy Chief Eric Halverson said. Police have no evidence to suggest that Medina engaged in other inappropriate relationships, Halverson said.
Officers in plain clothes took Medina into custody at Beaverton High School on Monday. They did not place handcuffs on him until after leaving the campus.
If convicted, Medina faces up to five years in prison and a $125,000 fine. An arraignment has not yet been scheduled.
