UPDATE

No charges filed against swim coach accused of abuse

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The Maricopa County Attorney's Office says they don't have enough evidence to charge a former Arizona State University swim coach accused of abuse.

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery announced on Wednesday that his office won't seek criminal charges against Greg John Winslow, 38, who was investigated by the ASU Police Department for allegedly kissing and fondling a teenage girl. The girl was a member of a club organization at an ASU swimming facility. She was not an ASU student and the club is not affiliated with ASU, according to Montgomery's office.

The police investigation recommended two counts of sexual abuse of a minor and the case was forwarded to the county attorney's office for review on Feb. 28, 2013.

"After a careful review of the information contained in the investigation, we determined that there was sufficient cause to seek an indictment in this matter," said Montgomery. "However, we were unable to meet the necessary burden of proof required to move forward with formal charges. Absent additional information which could support these or other allegations, we will not pursue this matter further."

Winslow was working for the University of Utah at the time of the allegations and he was suspended. The school did not renew his contract this month.

A 97-page police report released said Winslow was a popular coach at Arizona State University. [Click here to read the full police report (PDF)]

It said Winslow was 32 when he took a special interest in a gifted 15-year-old swimmer on the Sun Devils Aquatics. The girl told police she was fondled for two years starting in 2005.   

Police said there were no witnesses or other victims on the swim club.

Winslow has denied the allegations.
