A West Salem High School girls' basketball coach is jailed, accused of having sex with a student under the age of 16.

Salem Police arrested 30-year-old Emerance Berger Tuesday and booked him on charges of sodomy and sex abuse by a coach.

Berger has been the assistant varsity coach and the head junior varsity coach at West Salem High. Because of Berger's access to children through his coaching, there are concerns there could be other victims.

Anyone with information concerning this investigation is asked to telephone Detective Jeff Staples at (503)540-2351.
