Tim Magee

Admits to 2009 extended relationship with 16-year-old Willard girl
A former Willard High School soccer coach is accused of having had sexual relations with an underage girl about a decade ago. Tim Magee, 49, faces three counts of statutory sodomy.
According to the probable cause statement in the case, the victim told an investigator with the Willard Police Department that she had a sexual relationship with Magee between August and September of 2009. The victim said she was 16 at the time and Magee was 38.
The victim told police that she met Magee in the spring of 2008, and over the course of the next year, “the relationship developed through school activities, text messages and phone calls. She said she kissed Magee at his house in Willard in 2009 and then went over to his house
 on Saturday mornings over the next several weeks between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. while his wife was at work, and they performed sexual acts on each other. The victim said the relationship ended when her family moved out of state. Due to redactions in the probable cause statement, it was not immediately clear if the victim was a student at the high school where Magee coached at the time.
In a post-Miranda interview, Magee admitted that the victim was in his home and having a sexual relationship with her. He also described the sex acts they performed on each other. He also said he maintained contact with the victim for about a year after she moved away.
According to the probable cause statement, Magee said he was accused of having an affair with a student at Rio Rancho High School in New Mexico, but the school investigated the accusation and nothing came of it.
Online records show charges were filed against Magee on Saturday, Aug. 22; it was reported that he was fired as Willard’s head soccer coach the same day. Magee had been with the district since 2005 and became the boys and girls head soccer coach in 2008.
Magee was arrested and booked into the Greene County Jail; he was released on Tuesday, Aug. 25 on a $25,000 surety bond. While he is out on bond, Magee is required to wear a GPS tracking device, must have no contact with the victim, must stay away from any school, park or anyplace children congregate, and must have no contact with any children under 18. He is next scheduled to appear in court on Monday, Sept. 14.
