Former East L.A. Coach Pleads No Contest to Sex-Related Charges

A former volleyball coach at Esteban Torres High School in East Los Angeles pleaded no contest Tuesday to sex-related counts involving two 15-year-old girls he met at the school.

Jonathan Adam Roldan, 23, pleaded no contest to one felony count of unlawful sexual intercourse with one girl and one misdemeanor charge of child molestation involving the second girl, according to Deputy District Attorney Reinhold Mueller.

Roldan — who worked as a junior varsity girls’ volleyball coach – is facing three years in state prison, with sentencing set June 9. A judge likely will order the defendant to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

The Los Angeles man admitted engaging in an ongoing sexual relationship with one female student, beginning in September, and admitted beginning a relationship with another female student about a month later, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
