Prosecutors are searching for additional victims of a Laguna Niguel softball coach who is accused of sexually assaulting two 10-year-old girls, officials said Monday.
Glen Kauffman, 53, is seen in a photo released Sept. 28, 2017, by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
Glen Thomas Kauffman, 53, was expected to be charged with two felony counts of lewd acts on a child under 14 at his arraignment scheduled for Monday, according to a statement from the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
Officials said they would also seek a sentencing enhancement based on the allegation that he had multiple victims.
The Laguna Niguel resident coaches girls softball and also serves on the board of directors for the UC Irvine Alumni Association.
Though prosecutors cite Kauffman’s coaching position as granting him access to and the trust of minors at the time of the crimes, they did not confirm that he met his victims through his coaching work.
The sexual assault allegedly took place over the course of three years, between August 2014 and August 2017.
Kauffman committed lewd acts upon one victim on multiple occasions and assaulted the second once, prosecutors said.
Orange County sheriff’s officials, who investigated the case, arrested him on Aug. 27, according to the DA’s office. It was unclear when exactly the crimes were reported.
