Va. woman faces 34 sexual assault-related charges

CULPEPER, Va. (WVEC) -- A Virginia woman faces a huge slew of charges in connection with sexual assault and indecent liberties with children.

Cathy S. Rothgeb, 57, was charged with 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.

Rothgeb turned herself in to Virginia State Police Friday and is being held without bond at Centra Virginia Regional Jail. She is originally from Page County.

Her arrest stems from an investigation that launched in the summer of 2016 after a female victim approached an investigator about a sexual abuse incident.

This alleged abuse took place while Rothgeb served as a volunteer softball coach in Orange County.

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

Rothgeb has no recent affiliation with Orange County High School.

Anyone with anymore information about the investigation or Rothgeb's charges is encouraged to contact State Police at 1-888-300-0156 or by e-mail at questions@vsp.virignia.gov.
