Jan. 7th press release from The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office: https://www.bcpo.net/press-releases...ontact-and-endangering-the-welfare-of-a-childA Hackensack man, employed as an ice skating coach, is accused of sexual contact with a minor, authorities said Monday.
Andrew Lavrik faces criminal sexual contact and endangering the welfare of a child, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement.
On Dec. 10, Edgewater police said they received a report Lavrik “engaged in inappropriate conduct with a minor” within the borough in November, the Prosecutor's Office said.
It wasn’t until Thursday that the Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit and Edgewater police arrested Lavrik in Paramus, authorities said. The 32-year-old remains in police custody pending a detention hearing.
... The general manager at the Ice House, Robert Bakos, said Lavrik was an independent contractor there.
"As of his arrest, Andrew Lavrik is no longer permitted to use any of these facilities," Bakos said. "We suspend any of his coaching privileges at the Ice House."
... LAVRIK was remanded to the Bergen County Jail pending a detention hearing scheduled for Monday, January 7, 2019 at 9:00 a.m.
Acting Prosecutor Calo states that the charges are merely accusations and that the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and would like to thank the Edgewater Police Department for its assistance in this investigation.
