High School Tennis Coach Arrested for Indecent Liberties Against Child
McLean Police District – A 29-year-old high school tennis instructor is facing three felony charges of taking indecent liberties of a child by a custodian for an inappropriate sexual relationship with a student at George Mason High School. Our detectives began their investigation on June 16, after it was learned that Rafael “Rally” Diokno, of Falls Church, was having unlawful sexual contact with a student.
