ORLAND PARK, Ill. -- Orland Park Police confirmed that Tuesday night they arrested 28-year-old Jeffrey Morowczynski of Orland Park and charged him with two counts of aggravated criminal sex abuse of a minor.

Morowczynski was a gym teacher and coach at an elementary school in District 135.

Police learned of the incident in August 2014 and began investigating. The school district said he resigned in September.

Morowczynski appeared in bond court Wednesday morning and bond was set at $250,000. Police told WGN they do not believe there are any other victims at this time. Police say the victim was 14 years old at the time.

    School Board knew about this in August. The police department did not make an arrest until after the filing period expired for the local elections. Someone should question to school board president Joe LaMargo why the parents were not notified.
