ST. ALBANS, Vt. (WCAX) - A former Enosburgh soccer coach has been charged with sexually assaulting one of his former players.

Police arrested Paul Ladd, 32, Friday at “The Connect,” the Missisquoi Valley School District program where he works as a teacher. He’s formally a girls soccer coach at Enosburg Falls High School.

Police say two summers ago, he sexually assaulted one of his former players on the grounds at the high school.

Ladd pleaded not guilty and is being held without bail. The Superintendent at his current employer tells WCAX News, that the district conducts comprehensive background checks before hiring any employee who will work with students. They go on to say they were unaware of any prior misconduct, and that there are no allegations of wrongdoing while Ladd worked for the district.
