BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. - A Maryland youth football coach is facing a host of charges over allegations that he sexually abused a child "150 to 200" times over the course of two years – and law enforcement fears there may be more victims.
The Carroll County Sheriff’s office has arrested 38-year-old Michael Vincent Bonczewski of Baltimore County on charges including sexual abuse of a minor, continuing course of conduct with a child, sexual solicitation of a minor and child pornography.
The victim reported the abuse in January 2021. He told detectives that he was 13-years old when the abuse began in 2010, and that it continued through 2012.
