You’re a married 43-year-old coach and father of two, but you happen to meet this hot girl at a basketball tournament. What do you do? Well, if you are Erik Brandon Ross of Los Angeles, you allegedly exchange phone numbers with the girl, then hook up with her at a hotel room, have some booze and then sex. And then you get caught and get charged with four counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and eight counts of oral copulation with a minor. Here’s more from MSNBC:
On Jan. 24, Glendale police received a report that Ross “had engaged in sexual encounters with underage females,” Lorenz said in a statement.”The victim in the recent case is a 16-year-old female student/basketball player of a Los Angeles area high school and club team,” Lorenz said.Lorenz said Ross met the girl while coaching an independent girl’s youth basketball team last summer, and she did not play on his team but was participating in a tournament. He said they exchanged phone numbers and began having a relationship, and that “in December of 2008, Ross took the victim to a motel in Glendale, provided alcohol and engaged her sexually over a period of time.” Police believe there is a “strong likelihood” that Ross was involved with other underage girls, and other possible victims were asked to contact Glendale police.
