In December 2013, the Bay High School administration contacted the Bay Village Police Department regarding Kevin Fillinger, the boy’s junior varsity basketball coach, having inappropriate communications with Bay High students. The communications between the 26 year old Fillinger and the students were through Twitter and text messages. Fillinger, of Fairview Park, was immediately removed from his coaching position.
Bay Village Police Department investigated the inappropriate communications. The investigation uncovered other inappropriate conduct by Fillinger with a Bay High student. As a result, Fillinger was charged with Sexual Battery. Fillinger appeared in Rocky River Court on July 2, 2014 and the case has been bound over to the Cuyahoga County Grand Jury.
