Jamie Hahn Added to USA Swimming Banned for Life List After Child Porn Arrest

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado, October 11. USA Swimming added another member to its Banned for Life list today as Jamie Hahn, previously of Georgia and Alabama, has been banned after his arrest for possession of child pornography.

Hahn was arrested in Kentucky on April 7 by the Glasgow Police Department on two counts of Possession of Matter Portraying a Minor in a Sexual Performance. According to a report by WCLU 1490, Hahn's roommate “found child pornography” on Hahn's computer and alerted the Glasgow Police Department.

The report continues stating that “After questioning, Hahn admitted having child pornography on his computer and that he would allow the viewing of the contents of his computer. The computer did contain child pornography.” WCLU also reported that Hahn was wanted for child molestation in Georgia.

Hahn had been the head coach of the Bainbridge Extreme Swim Team in Georgia, and also coached with the Wiregrass Aquatic Team in Alabama prior to relocating to Kentucky. According to a short biography on the Bainbridge Extreme Swim Team website, Hahn had been a member of the Auburn Swim and Water Polo teams while in college.

Hahn was banned by USA Swimming for violating several Code of Conduct items: 304.3.6(i), (iii), (iv), 304.3.17, 305.1.

304.3.6 Conviction of, imposition of a deferred sentence for, or any plea of guilty or no contest at any time, past or present, or the existence of any pending charges, for (i) any felony, (ii) any offense involving use, possession, distribution or intent to distribute illegal drugs or substances, (iii) any crime involving sexual misconduct, or (iv) any criminal offense against a minor.
