A former youth sports coach has pleaded guilty to Child Seduction and Intimidation.

In a release, the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office said no plea agreement was offered and Tudela pleaded guilty as charged.

The Prosecutor’s Office said a victim K9 named Wallis provided support and comfort to the victim on multiple occasions.
Tudela’s sentencing is scheduled for March 13th in Vanderburgh Superior Court.
He’s the former owner of Tudela Soccer Academy in Newburgh.
He’s being held in the Vanderburgh County jail. His bail is set at $50,000.
