Van Buren wrestling coach charged with disseminating obscene material to minors

KEOSAUQUA - A Van Buren Community School District wrestling coach has been arrested and charged with dissemination and exhibition of obscene material to minors.

Bradley Michael Goehring, 27, of Keosauqua, was arrested March 4 for an incident that allegedly took place on Feb. 19. In a motion filed Friday, Goehring pleaded not guilty to the charge. Goehring is being represented by Paul A. Miller of Miller Law Office in Fairfield.

Goehring’s bond was set at $1,000, which he has paid.

Van Buren County Attorney Craig Miller has a conflict of interest, and asked Davis County Attorney Rick L. Lynch to prosecute the case. The court appointed Lynch as special prosecutor.

The Van Buren School District had not returned a request for comment by press time. Goehring is no longer listed as the high school’s head wrestling coach on the school district’s website. He was not employed by the school in any other capacity.
