Additional charges for South Philly baseball coach

    A South Philadelphia baseball coach faces more charges after being arrested this week for child corruption.

    Lou Spadacinni, a coach at Ss. Neumann Goretti High School, is now charged with rape after another alleged victim came forward last night. Spadaccini was re-arrested last night, according to NBC10, this time for the rape and sexual assault of a 13-year-old boy.

    He was first arrested and charged with corrupting the morals of a minor, simple assault, and furnishing alcohol to a minor.
