STAYTON, Ore. - Detectives with the Linn County Sheriff's Office arrested a Stayton man who used to coach in a youth basketball program and charged him with multiple counts of sex abuse.

Undersheriff Bruce Riley said Dennis Holm, 46, was arrested Monday in Stayton, which is located southeast of Salem.

Holm was a volunteer basketball coach in the Cascade Youth Basketball Program in Turner, Oregon, when Riley said he met the victim seven years ago. The victim is now 18 years old.

Riley said the relationship between Holm and the girl turned sexual when she was 16 and went on for two years.

Riley told KATU News that Holm has not been coaching "for some time."

Holm was charged with three counts of Sex Abuse II. He is due in court on Oct. 24.
