Former youth sports coach accused of raping girl in Eugene in early 2000s

An Oregon City man who had coached youth sports in Eugene faces accusations who sexually abused a girl who lived in his home when he lived here more than a decade ago.

Eugene Police arrested Marvin Paul Harley, 48, on Thursday on charges of Sex Abuse in the First Degree, Sodomy in the Second Degree, Rape in the Second Degree and Unlawful Sexual Penetration in the Second Degree.

The victim told an agency in another state that the crimes happened in Eugene between 2000 and 2002 while she was under 18 and lived in Harley's home.

Police said Harley was at that time acting as a coach for middle-school age children.
