Upstate New York college coach faces sex charges

As an alumnus of Syracuse University, this story from AP caught my eye. Le Moyne is the Salt City's other school, and apparently, its soccer coach has been up to no good.

Read on:

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The former women's soccer coach at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, N.Y., is facing additional sex abuse charges after two more girls came forward claiming inappropriate behavior.

State police say 28-year-old James Riverso is now charged with 18 more counts, including sex abuse and disseminating indecent material to minors.

Investigators say he sent sexually explicit messages and photos to the victims' cell phones over several months. He's also accused of having a physical relationship with the teenage girls he coached in a youth soccer league.

Riverso resigned as Le Moyne coach after he was arrested last month on charges he sent sexual messages and photos to a 16-year-old girl.

Troopers could not say if Riverso has a lawyer. He's due in court next Thursday.
