Former Lansdale Catholic lacrosse coach Timothy Udinski faces up to 20 years in prison, after pleading no contest Friday to multiple stalking and harassment charges in false Lansdale Catholic sexual abuse claims.
A former Lansdale Catholic lacrosse coach will be convicted of making false molestation accusations via anonymous emails against school coaches, after he pleaded no contest to the charges on Friday in Montgomery County court.
Timothy Adam Udinski, 44, of Old Dublin Pike, Doylestown, faces more than 20 years in prison, according to The Pottstown Mercury. Udinski pleaded no contest to multiple counts of stalking and harassment of school officials between October 2011 and May 2012, according to the article.
Udinski’s no contest plea is not admission of guilt, but it is admission that there is enough evidence to convict him at trial of the crimes.
A background report on Udinski will be completed prior to sentencing.
According to court records, Udinski is free on $25,000 unsecured bail.
Udinski is accused of four counts of misdemeanor stalking that repeatedly caused fear and two counts of misdemeanor harassment by threatening language through anonymous emails, according to court documents.
Authorities allege Udinski sent seven anonymous emails claiming sexual abuse at the school by coaches, including retired coach Jim Algeo.
During a time of sexual abuse upheaval in the ranks of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, police and Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman allege Udinski sent seven emails containing false claims of sexual abuse to the Archdiocese between October 19, 2011 and May 31, 2012.
In these emails, he allegedly deliberately and falsely claimed that both the Lansdale Catholic football and lacrosse coaches were engaged in sexual solicitation of players on their respective teams, according to Ferman.
Udinski, who is president of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Youth Lacrosse Association, also accused Lansdale Catholic Principal Timothy Quinn of failing to take any action regarding the alleged misconduct.
