A Brooklyn youth soccer league coach who was deported for molesting a kid and then snuck back into the U.S. has been indicted — on charges of inappropriately touching another child.
Pablo Pineda was arrested June 21 on charges of molesting a 10-year-old boy on several occasions from September to June, officials said. A grand jury indicted him Thursday on second-degree charges of sexual conduct against a child and endangering the welfare of a child charges. If convicted of molesting the boy, who is a soccer player, he faces up to seven years in prison and deportation.
Pineda, 39, admitted to police he illegally entered the U.S. from Mexico in 2014, according to the criminal complaint. Court documents also showed the moderate-risk sex offender was deported to El Salvador for having indecent sexual contact with a child 13 years ago in Dallas.
The coach said he lived in New Jersey and the Bronx without registering his sex-offender status with the police, according to the criminal complaint. A grand jury is still deliberating on his failure to register as a sex offender, court records show. A conviction on that charge carries a penalty of up to four years in prison.
