A former Ferris High School coach accused of molestation and rape of a child is now facing federal charges, according to an indictment.
Charles Eglet is facing six charges, including online enticement of a minor; sex trafficking by force, fraud or coercion; child sex trafficking; receipt of child pornography; production of child pornography; and possession of child pornography.
Eglet appeared in court for a pretrial conference hearing on April 19 where attorneys said they expected a federal indictment on the case by the end of May.
At that conference, Eglet’s next pretrial hearing was rescheduled for June 21 and a new trial date was scheduled for July 8.
Spokane Public Schools spokesperson Brian Coddington said Eglet is no longer employed with the district.
Eglet was arrested on Aug. 24, 2018, following allegations that he forced a 15-year-old girl to have sex with him at Northern Quest on June 5, 2018, after meeting her on Snapchat.
Detectives then interviewed another 14-year-old girl on Nov. 15, 2018, who said she met Eglet on Snapchat. She said when he first started talking to Eglet, “he had told her that he had already knew her and said that they had gone to college together,” documents said.
She said she corrected him immediately and told him she was 14. Documents show that she repeatedly told him how old she was.
Documents said Eglet is being investigated for sexual exploitation of a minor, communication with a minor for immoral purposes, third-degree rape of a child and possession of depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
