California School Water Polo Coach Charged with Sex Crimes

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

A water polo coach at Walnut Creek high school is facing charges of sex crimes against a minor which as any Orange County criminal defense lawyer knows, are some of the more serious crimes that a person can be charged with.

According to reports, the 27-year-old coach has been arrested, and is facing 9 felony charges against a minor. He was arrested at his home in Walnut Creek, and has now been released on a $390,000 bail. According to prosecutors, they have charged him with felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, sexual penetration of a minor, and oral copulation of a minor.

The man is believed to be no longer employed by the Mount Diablo Unified School District, which says that he was a “seasonal” coach. The School District is cooperating with the police investigation, and is also conducting its own investigation.

The man faces very serious charges during his arraignment which is scheduled for May 20th. Sex crimes against minors are some of the most serious of sex offenses that any person can expect to be faced. In fact, sex crimes belong to a very rare category of crimes, in which a person's guilt is almost presumed even before he is charged.
There is a very low level of public tolerance for such crimes in the community, and as such, investigators and prosecutors are often under very high pressure from the media and the public to prosecute these crimes very stringently. Unfortunately, very often, in such situations the rights of the defendant can be compromised.

If you're currently being investigated for sex crimes, or have been arrested for a sex crime, get in touch with a lawyer immediately.
