A local soccer coach facing lewdness with a child charges appeared in court for his arraignment Tuesday morning in North Las Vegas.

Agustin Ramirez-Rodriguez, 54, is accused of inappropriately touching a 15-year-old girl who was on one of his teams May 16 at Hartke Park.

A police report says the coach told the teen that she needed to go to his car so he could massage her leg after it was injured. Originally, Ramirez-Rodriguez told police he never touched the girl. He later told investigators he may have touched her unintentionally.
