Former Eden wrestling coach admits to raping two juveniles

A former wrestling coach in the Eden School District has pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree rape after admitting to engaging in sexual intercourse with two juveniles.

The separate incidents happened at the home of 27-year-old Justin Farrara, according to Erie County District Attorney Frank Sedita III. One took place in August of 2012 and the other in April of this year. 

School officials discovered the situation from social media and contacted Eden Police. Both victims admitted the relationship upon questioning. It was not disclosed whether the victims are female or male.

Farrara, who currently lives in Hamburg, no longer works for the district. He is free on his own recognizance.  He faces up to eight years in state prison when he is sentenced October 23.
