CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) - The former coach of a Catholic high school in Cumberland has been granted probation in a sex offense case involving a 17-year-old player.

Online court records show that the trial of 24-year-old Catherine Czapski (ZAP’-ski) was held Thursday in Allegany County District Court.

She pleaded not guilty to one count of fourth-degree sex offense and was granted probation before judgment after a trial. Probation before judgment is not a conviction, and Czapski can apply to have the entire matter expunged if she successfully completes one year of supervised probation.

The judge suspended a one-year jail term and a $1,000 fine.

Prosecutors dropped four other counts of fourth-degree sex offense.

Czapski was charged in January. She was the girls’ soccer coach at Bishop Walsh High School.
