SALISBURY, Md.- A former Wicomico High School wrestling coach has pleaded guilty to the second-degree assault of one of his teenage students.

As the result of his guilty plea on Thursday, 34-year-old Jason Bruce of Mardela Springs, Md., faces a maximum penalty of 10 years or $2,500 fine, or both. Sentencing is expected to occur on Wednesday, May 15.

Court documents reveal that on Jan. 21, the 16-year-old victim and member of Wi-Hi's wrestling team stated Bruce participated in a "live wrestling practice" with him because the coach did not feel he was putting enough effort in practice. That is when, according to the victim, that Bruce repeatedly struck him with his forearm and elbow in the neck as he was lying flat on his stomach.
