Basketball Coach Accused of Molesting 8 Children at Santa Clarita Valley Schools, CA

34-year-old Jeremy Haggerty, who has coached basketball at several high schools in the Santa Clarita Valley, was arrested Thursday morning after being accused of molesting eight children, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

According to Sgt. Brian Hudson, all eight victims were male high school athletes between the ages 14 and 18. The alleged victim who first came forward is now an adult. The alleged abuse dates back to 2008, according to the release. All of the juveniles were coached by the suspect while he worked as a basketball coach at several Santa Clarita Valley high schools ...

Hudson said Haggerty would groom both the children and their families, which eventually led to the parents allowing him to be alone with their children inside their homes. "Unfortunately, that's where a lot of our crimes in this case took place: inside the residences of our victims," Hudson said.

He also allegedly told players and their parents that his teaching methods that included physical treatment mirrored college programs and the pros. "He would tell them I need to perform some 'body maintenance' on you, and that was another term essentially for massaging," Hudson told KTLA. "He would get the kids alone, have them disrobe and essentially perform massages on them that eventually led to him touching them inappropriately."

Haggerty was booked into jail where he is being held on $1.2 million, sheriff's officials said. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.
