Former tennis coach again accused of violating restraining order; bail upped to $1M

Bail for a former high school tennis coach charged with sexually assaulting a teenage student was upped to $1 million Friday after authorities say he once again violated a restraining order requiring him to stay away from the victim.

The Star Tribune reports Daniel Erik Hubbard Wilson, 27, turned himself in to police on Thursday. FOX 9 added that the higher bail was set to discourage him from violating his no contact order a third time.

Wilson was arrested Thursday after reportedly contacting the girl by accessing her email accounts and using her passwords to write emails in her drafts file, according to Janel Dressen, an attorney representing the girl and her family. In the initial restraining order, the girl's father said that Wilson is "obsessed" with his daughter.

WCCO reported Wilson is facing additional felony charges in connection with the restraining order violations.

A week ago, Wison was charged with a felony for violating a restraining order by contacting the girl. He was arrested Nov. 26 after authorities say he appeared outside the girl’s therapy session. In October, Wilson was charged in Ramsey County with violating a harassment restraining order, with authorities saying he tricked the girl into following him on social media and then secretly met with her.

In October, Wilson was charged in Ramsey County with having sex with a student. The criminal complaint said that he sexually assaulted the teenaged girl multiple times over the course of a year, beginning when she was 15.

Wilson had coached the teenager at Visitation High School; he had also been her private tennis coach. Wilson was suspended and then resigned from his job as varsity coach at the Mendota Heights school.
