Youth Soccer Coach Arrested
updated: May 07, 2014, 12:47 PM

Solvang - A longtime youth soccer coach in the Santa Ynez area is in custody and charged with sex crimes against a child. 42-year- old Jose Diaz was arrested yesterday on May 6 for having sexual relations with a teenager when she was 14 and 15 years old. Diaz was arrested for several crimes included annoying or molesting a child and oral copulation with a child. He is being held at the Santa Barbara County Jail on $100,000 bail.

Diaz has been a soccer coach with the local American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) girl's league for approximately 18 years. Because of his involvement with local youth, Sheriff's detectives are concerned there may be more victims. If you have information which may assist detectives in this case and/or help identify any additional victims, you are encouraged to call the Sheriff's Tip-Line at 805-681-4171.
