Former Youth Baseball Coach Sentenced to Prison for Lewd Acts on Boys

POMONA (CNS) - A Rowland Heights man who coached youth baseball was sentenced today to nine years and four months in state prison and ordered to register as a sex offender for life for lewd acts on three boys.

Carlton Murray Harris Jr., 48, pleaded no contest Oct. 22 to one count of committing a lewd act on a child under 14 and two counts of committing a lewd act on a child 14 or 15 years old, according to Deputy District Attorney Leslie Bouvier.

Harris was a coach for the Puente Hills-Rowland Heights Little League, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department reported shortly after his arrest in March.

The victim were members of the teams Harris coached over the years. They ranged in age from 11 to 15 and were molested between 2014 and 2017 at Harris' home, Bouvier said.
