MARTINEZ, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a longtime Northern California high school baseball coach charged with child molestation has turned himself in.
The Contra Costa Times reports that Joel Kaufman is in custody after a $300,000 warrant had been issued for his arrest.
County prosecutors say the 52-year-old Kaufman is expected to post bail Friday afternoon and will be arraigned at a later date.
Kaufman was charged Wednesday with multiple misdemeanors and felonies, including lewd and lascivious acts on a child younger than 14. He is accused of molesting one teen boy and secretly filming another in a bathroom.
Authorities have not released how Kaufman knew the alleged victims. They say the crimes occurred between 2005 and last year.
Kaufman is the coach of a San Jose-based travelling high school-aged baseball club and previously coached at Oakland's Bishop O'Dowd High School, where he led the team to five league titles
