CHARLOTTESVILLE — A former volunteer softball coach in Orange County has been charged with nearly three dozen counts involving sexual and other crimes against children, ranging from forcible sodomy and object sexual penetration to cruelty to children.

Cathy S. Rothgeb, 57, of Stanley, was indicted by an Orange County grand jury Friday and turned herself in to police the same day. She is being held without bond at the Central Virginia Regional Jail, according to Virginia State Police officials.

Rothgeb, a former youth softball coach for Orange County High School, coached youth teams from the 1980s through the early 2000s. Police said she has no current affiliation with Orange County High School.

The charges stem from an investigation begun by state police in the summer of 2016 after a female victim approached an investigator about alleged sexual abuse during Rothgeb's tenure as a volunteer softball coach, police said.

Rothgeb is scheduled to be in court Thursday, records show.
