CARY, N.C. (AP) — The head coach of a North Carolina high school championship soccer team is accused of having sexually explicit pictures of young girls on a computer.
Robert Jules Peterson is facing six counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.
Cary police Det. Kevin West said in arrest warrants that on June 4 and 5, Peterson had six computer images showing unknown girls. Head of detectives Capt. Don Hamilton said Monday that the investigation was continuing and could lead to other charges.
Wake County schools spokeswoman Stella Shelton said Peterson has been suspended with pay.
Peterson is free on $50,000 bail, and his attorney says the charges will be addressed in court.
Last spring, Peterson led Green Hope to the N.C. High School Athletic Association 4-A girls’ soccer championship.
