John E. Hamilton – Little League Coach – Arrested for Sexually Abusing a Child


A local little league coach has been arrested after allegations arose that he sexually abused a child under his supervision 12 years ago.

Fairfax County police concluded a three-month investigation with the arrest on Friday of 37-year-old John E. Hamilton of Centreville.

Hamilton’s accuser, now 24 years old, was 12 at the time of the assaults. He alleges that Hamilton sexually abused him over a period of several months in 1997.

In the course of their investigation, police found that a 16-year-old foreign exchange service was living with Hamilton and removed him from the home.

Hamilton, who was a little league baseball coach for the Fort Hunt Youth Athletic Association at the time, has been charged with aggravated sexual battery and taking indecent liberties with a child. He is being held without bond.

Over his years in the northern Virginia region, Hamilton has held several athletic positions that would have afforded him access to children, so detectives are asking parents with concerns about any inappropriate contact between Hamilton and their children to contact police.
