LYCOMING, Pa. (WTVR) Ty M. Levy, a former Henrico elementary school teacher and tennis coach was found guilty on Friday of two counts of sexual abuse of children and four counts of unlawful contact with a minor.

The Sun Gazette reported that Levy, age 49, arranged inappropriate online video chats with a 15-year-old South Williamsport girl in December 2009.

 Earlier in June several charges were dropped against the coach accused of contacting and engaging in a sexual relationship over the internet with a young girl in Pennsylvania.

He stood accused of convincing the 15-year-old female to disrobe and expose herself to him over the computer. They communicated over the course of several months, reports said, via instant messaging and online Skype chats.

The charges of unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of a minor, indecent exposure and open lewdness were dropped.

He is expected to be sentenced on August 8.
