CROWN POINT | A former Hobart High School junior varsity baseball coach who had been accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student entered a pretrial diversion agreement.
The Lake County prosecutor's office on Wednesday filed a charge of battery, a Class B misdemeanor, against Gregory J. Glover, 25, of Hobart.
As part of the agreement, the prosecutor's office will withhold prosecution for a year. The charge will then be dismissed if he does not commit any criminal offenses.
Glover had been charged July 29 with felony charges of child seduction, which were all dismissed during Wednesday's hearing.
He was accused of having a sexual relationship with a then 17-year-old girl who was a student at Hobart High, according to court records. The girl told police Glover had sent her more than 100 text messages, and she said she initiated contact with him at his house.
Hobart High officials began investigating Glover on June 9, 2014, regarding incidents that occurred in May 2014 between Glover and the student. The school then contacted the Indiana Department of Child Services and the Hobart Police Department.
Glover, who was not a teacher, worked at the school as a contract junior varsity baseball coach. School officials terminated his contract June 10, 2014.
As part of the agreement, Glover will have to pay $3,694 in restitution to the girl's family. He was also ordered to not have any contact with the girl.
