Police Say Coach Admits To Incident Involving 15 Year-Old Female
According to Chief Investigator Billy Butler, “He cooperated and admitted to the incident that happened at his residence. According to police the incident occurred on January 29, 2015 at Weir’s residence on Hills Chapel Rd in Manchester. Butler added, the victim “had communicated about it to a friend and the friend got word to a parent and it snowballed from there and ended up in our laps.” “There were some text messages back and forth and pictures back and forth.” The investigator said that “when and if the grand jury gets this case, there will probably be other charges at that time.”
Weir faces a court date Feb. 17. He is free after posting bond that was set at $100,000.
