Jon MIchael Beber, ex-Boulder swim coach, accused of sexually assaulting underage swimmers

A former Boulder swim coach was arrested last week after prosecutors allege he had inappropriate sexual contact with multiple underage swimmers in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Jon Michael Beber was arrested Thursday in Atlanta on suspicion of three counts of sex assault on a child by one in a position of trust. He is currently awaiting extradition to Boulder County.

According to a news release, Beber worked as a swim coach for the club team Boulder Swimming from 1997 through 2002. Prosecutors said he left in 2002 after allegations surfaced of inappropriate sexual contact with multiple underage swimmers on the team.

The Boulder County District Attorney’s Office is looking to speak to anyone who may have information on the case.

“We strongly encourage individuals with information to contact the District Attorney’s Office,” District Attorney Michael Dougherty said in a statement. “Our Sex Crimes Unit is handling this case and is available to speak with anyone with information.”

According to the news release, Beber also coached swim teams in Albany, NY; Atlanta and Florida.

Those with any information are asked to contact Kristin Weisbach with the district attorney’s office at 303-441-3811 or [email protected]
