Ex-Bucks County coach a no-show for rape trial; warrant issued

Police are searching for a man who they say failed to appear for trial on rape and sex assault charges Monday morning in Doylestown.

Shannon Westmoreland, 48, is accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old while he was a youth football coach with the Bensalem Ramblers Athletic Association in 2005.

Westmoreland is also charged with sexually assaulting another child from the age of 4 until she was about 10, plus a third child in 1999 when she was 6 years old. Police accuse him of sexually assaulting her again in 2011 when she was 18.

Prosecutors say that bail has been revoked and a bench warrant has been issued for Westmoreland, of West Chester.
