CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A youth field hockey coach who carried on a yearlong sexual relationship with a South Bay teenage girl pleaded guilty Friday to eight charges, including sexual intercourse with a minor.
Jose Antonio Carrillo, 50, faces up to seven years and eight months in prison when he is sentenced Dec. 19 at the courthouse in Chula Vista.
Carrillo, a volunteer coach at Bonita Vista High School and an hourly instructor at Jackie Robinson YMCA in San Diego, carried on the sexual relationship with the girl for a year beginning in July 2010, said Deputy District Attorney Mary Loeb.
Carrillo was arrested July 6 during a field hockey event in Chula Vista.
The case came to light that same weekm when the 16-year-old victim's aunt saw the girl with an unfamiliar cell phone and asked where it came from, according to Chula Vista police Capt. Gary Wedge.
The teen said Carrillo had given it to her, then admitted to the affair with the coach under further questioning, the captain said.
During a hearing today, Carrillo pleaded guilty to four counts of oral copulation with a minor and two counts each of sodomy with a minor and sexual intercourse with a person under 18, Loeb said.
