A 25-year-old gym coach pleaded guilty May 27 to having unlawful sexual relations with a teenage girl at La Jolla Shores.

Patrick Jay Wehrung was remanded into jail Friday after his guilty pleas once the prosecutor told the judge he was in violation of the no contact order with the victim. Wehrung had been free on $80,000 bond.

Sentencing was set for June 27 by San Diego Superior Court Judge Dan Link. Wehrung remains in the South Bay Detention Facility without bail.

Deputy District Attorney Nicole Roth said Tuesday Wehrung faces a maximum sentence of five years and four months in state prison. She said probation was not ruled out.

Wehrung pleaded guilty to committing unlawful sexual intercourse, oral copulation, and digital penetration with a minor. Nine other charges will be dismissed.

He met the 15-year-old girl at Champion Gymnastics & Cheer, a gym in Santee where he used to work. He was fired after his Feb. 9 arrest. All of the sexual activity took place at La Jolla Shores.
