Local Coach Facing Charges 11 Jul 13

A long-time coach with the Sibley East School District is facing criminal charges after allegedly taking an “upskirt” picture with his cell phone of the stylist that was cutting his hair Saturday morning. The woman reported the inappropriate behavior to police, who say 38-year-old Doug Flieth admitted to taking the picture during a haircut at her home. He’s been charged with a gross misdemeanor count of interference with privacy. Flieth is the head girls basketball coach at Sibley East High School, and also coaches football and golf and teaches elementary physical education. He has been a coach at the school for 15 years. Sibley East officials say they have never before received a complaint about Flieth in the past. The district is reportedly conducting its own investigation as well. Flieth faces up to a year in jail and a $3,000 fine.

    “Sibley East officials say they have never before received a complaint about Flieth in the past.” This is not true. There have been complaints. There has been unauthorized video.
