An embattled Schuylkill County official is the subject of an investigation into sexual misconduct.
According to a published report, US Center for Safesport, an organization that investigates reports of sexual misconduct within the US Olympic Program, is checking into allegations against Tamaqua Area School Board President Larry Wittig. Wittig is a member of the Vesper Boat Club of Philadelphia, a USA rowing facility. In December Wittig admitted to having sex with a student while he was the coach of the University of Pennsylvania rowing team over 30 years ago.
Wittig is currently on a temporary suspension from the Vesper Boat Club.
The center says any findings will be posted on their website.
