Robin Michael Alarcon, 35, a soccer coach at the 4S Ranch-area school in Poway, California (San Diego County), a girls’ lacorsse coach at Mt. Carmel High School, and a girls’ club soccer coach in Rancho Penasquitos was captured after texting one young girl on one of his teams his wish and intent to commit a sexual act with her.Â He was jailed with bail set at $75,000.
According to San Diego’s 10 News, Alarcon’s arrest was the second in just over a month involving a one-time physical education instructor with Poway Unified School District. On Dec. 4, 2009, former Westview High volunteer wrestling coach Ryan Paul Carnell was jailed on suspicion of molesting an underage female student.Â Carnell, 28, had pleaded no contest to lewd behavior three months earlier for sending a picture of his genitals to a 16-year-old female student.
We thank San Diego’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force for the amazing work they’ve done in capturing coaches who move into positions of trust in order to prey upon the children they are supposed to care for.
