Greece Soccer Coach Charged

WHEC-TV reports: State Police have charged a Hilton man with larceny and scheme to defraud after they say he stole money from the parents of players on a travel soccer team he coached...

According to State Police, 46-year-old Dennis Schuler was the coach of a girls' travel soccer team based out of Greece from August 2010 until April 2011. Police say that during that time, Schuler collected over $3,000 from parents of the team members to pay for soccer-related activities and services under false pretenses.

Police say Schuler, who is a former employee of the Athletic Republic on Lyell Avenue, used that facility for team and individual training and did not reimburse the company for the time used.

Schuler is charged with grand larceny and scheme to defraud, both felonies, for the Greece incidents. He's charged with petit larceny and falsifying business records, a felony, in the City of Rochester.

Schuler will reappear in Greece Town Court on December 13th, and in City court on December 15th.
