Council Bluffs man accused of sex with 14-year-old

Posted: Updated:

A nonjury trial is scheduled to begin Thursday for a western Iowa youth softball coach accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old friend of his daughter.

The Daily Nonpareil reports that 48-year-old John Osborn, of Council Bluffs, has pleaded not guilty to four counts of sex abuse on a minor.

Council Bluffs police say the girl and Osborn began exchange text messages in June and had phone conversations about sex.

Court documents say the girl reported that she and Osborn engaged in sexual acts in July when the girl stayed at Osborn's house for a sleepover with his daughter.

Police say Osborn has denied willingly touching the teen and told investigators that he had refused her advances.
