Coach Charged With Sexual Misconduct
(North Las Vegas, NV) — A volunteer coach at Legacy High School is accused of having sex with a player on the girl’s basketball team.
Twenty-three year-old Angelo Cruz was arrested yesterday. He volunteered at the North Las Vegas campus and was not an employee of the school district.
Cruz faces two counts of sexual misconduct with the 16-year-old student.
The age of consent for sex in Nevada is 16, but the law also states that administrators, coaches or volunteers are prohibited from having sex with a student “enrolled in or attending the school at which the person is employed or volunteering.”
