Former Maryland City youth soccer coach convicted of child abuse – CapitalGazette.com

A former Maryland City youth league soccer coach faces up to 45 years in prison after he was convicted Monday of sexually abusing a player.

Eris Murray, 56, of Hanover, was found guilty of felony sexual abuse of a minor, second-degree sex offense and sodomy. An Anne Arundel County jury convicted him of abusing a former player on two occasions.

The player, now a teenager, told investigators last year Murray sexually assaulted him while he was staying at Murray’s home on two occasions between 2008 and 2012. He was between 8 and 12 years old during that period.

The juvenile told investigators Murray was the coach of his Maryland City Mustangs youth soccer team during the same time period. A spokesman for the league said last year Murray only coached when his son was a player and had not been with the team since.
