George Logan III, 43, who is being held without bond, will appear in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court in Manassas to answer charges of indecent liberties, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and using a communications device to facilitate a crime.

Logan was the girls’ varsity basketball coach at Highland School, a private school in Warrenton until he was fired Monday.  

According to police, Logan began an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old student in January.

Logan turned himself into Prince Williams County Police shortly after they searched his home Monday “to investigate a sexual assault, which was reported to have occurred at a residence located in the 8200 block of Humphrey Lane in Manassas,” police said.

“Detectives further learned that the accused sent inappropriate text messages to the victim,” according to police.

Logan was a well-known trainer and coach in the area. He was assistant coach to the girls’ varsity team at Potomac High School in Dumfries, coached boy and girl elite teams for the Amateur Athletic Union in Prince Williams County, and owned G Team Sports Training, which offers sports clinics and personal training, according to a press release on the school’s website.

The school has not made a statement about the incident.
