A former youth softball coach in Orange and Spotsylvania counties is facing an additional 12 sexual assault charges after her arrest in October on 34 similar charges, according to Virginia State Police.

Cathy S. Rothgeb, 57, of Stanley, was indicted by a grand jury in Spotsylvania on Tuesday on four counts of object sexual penetration, four counts of forcible sodomy and four counts of indecent liberties with a juvenile by a custodian, VSP spokesperson Corinne Geller said.

Rothgeb remains in custody since her arrest in Orange County in October on seven counts of object sexual penetration, seven counts of forcible sodomy, eight counts of indecent liberties with children, eight counts of cruelty to children and four counts of aggravated sexual battery.

The charges stem from two females who informed investigators of the alleged abuse while Rothgeb was a volunteer softball coach.

Rothgeb, a former youth softball coach for Orange County High School, previously coached youth recreational leagues and travel teams in Orange County, Spotsylvania County and throughout the region from the 1980s through the early 2000s.

Police encourage anyone who might have information on Rothgeb and the charges to contact investigators at 888-300-0156 or email questions@vsp.virginia.gov.
