Massachusetts highschool soccer volunteer coach is charged with little one rape
A Brockton High School volunteer football coach was arrested this week on charges of sexually abusing a child who officials discovered is not a member of the town’s school community, authorities said.
Kharee Louis-Jeune was arrested at around 8 a.m. Thursday by Brockton police officers and members of the Police Department’s Police Department on Fleeing Arrests and Crimes Against Children. The arrest came after the execution of an arrest warrant in the man’s house in Brockton, the Ministry said in a statement.
The warrant issued by the Dorchester Division of Boston City Court allegedly accused Louis-Jeune of child rape, sex trafficking, possession of pictures of child sexual abuse, luring a minor and blackmailing through threats of injury.
The department said the warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into illegal sexual acts allegedly alleged to be the 33-year-old Brockton man, including child rape and the possession and digital distribution of images of sexual abuse.
In a statement sent to the parents and guardians of the players on the town’s high school football team, Brockton Public Schools superintendent Mike Thomas stated that volunteer coaching duties would not normally involve unsupervised contact with student athletes.
In accordance with state law and district guidelines, Thomas added, the volunteer coach passed a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) review prior to being accepted for the position.
“We understand that this news will be disturbing and disturbing to our students and families,” said Thomas. “Any family with questions is encouraged to contact high school to talk to Dr. To speak to Murray. The Brockton Police are working with the Boston Police on the ongoing investigation. “
The school district strongly encourages any student, parent, or guardian who wishes to report any behavior to call Brockton Police Department at (508) 941-0200.
The Brockton Police Department is cooperating with the Boston Police Department as part of the ongoing investigation, the superintendent said.
