UPDATED: Police Charge Private Coach, Tutor With Sex Abuse Of A Minor


Published:

UPDATE Wednesday Montgomery County Police have charged a Germantown man who coaches and tutors in Bethesda and Potomac with sex offenses against a teenage girl. Police on Tuesday said Daniel Mandel Sirotkin, 30, of the 17300 block of Autumn Harvest Court in Germantown, has been charged with two counts of Sex Abuse of a Minor and three counts of Third Degree Sex Offense after MCPS school officials notified police of a private tutor and athletic coach engaging in inappropriate contact with students. The charges stem from alleged incidents with one victim, according to charging documents. The abuse occurred multiple times from 2011 to 2013, according to the documents. According to police, Sirotkin was hired by parents to coach and tutor students from several private and public schools in the Bethesda and Potomac areas. Sirotkin, who was a honorable mention on the 2001 All-Gazette Wrestling Team at Quince Orchard, is listed as an assistant coach for the Good Counsel High School wrestling team in Olney. Good Counsel President Paul Barker said Sirotkin coached at the school in the past but is not a wrestling coach there this year. He was listed as the head coach of a club travel team during the 2010-2011 season of the Viking and BCC Mat Club, which practiced at the Landon School. Michael Lerner, director of the what is now the Viking Mat Club, said he had no idea about the allegations against Sirotkin and indicated Sirotkin no longer coaches with the club. "I've already recreated the lists from way back when and I'm going to pull all the parents to see if anyone had anything fishy going on," Lerner said. "I certainly didn't know about anything." Police say Sirotkin has been tutoring and coaching high school students for several years and, in a press release, encouraged any parent of child who feels he engaged in inappropriate behavior to call the Family Crimes Division at 240-773-5400.
