Formal charges were filed today against a Silverado High School softball coach accused of having sex with a player on the team.
Albert Hernandez, 43, was charged in Las Vegas Justice Court with one felony count of use of a child in production, three counts of preparing, advertising or distributing materials depicting pornography involving a minor and two counts of sexual conduct between certain employees of a school and pupil, according to the Clark County District Attorney's Office.
On Thursday the 43-year-old was arrested off campus without incident and booked at the Clark County Detention Center, said Sgt. Darnell Couthen, of Clark County School District Police.
In late April the victim’s father alerted authorities to what he suspected was an inappropriate relationship between his daughter and Hernandez.
Hernandez is being held without bail at the detention center, according to jail records. He was scheduled to appear in court today.
School police are asking anyone with information, including other possible victims, to contact detectives at 799-7830 extension 5262 or call Crime Stoppers at 385-5555 to remain anonymous.
