Posted by Fay Arfa | May 17, 2016 | 0 Comments

A former basketball coach at the Albert Einstein Academy in Santa Clarita pleaded no contest today to sexually molesting six boys, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Randolph Jackson, 29, entered his plea just as jury selection was about to begin, said Deputy District Attorney Reinhold Mueller with the Sex Crimes Division, who is prosecuting the case.

Jackson pleaded no contest to a total of nine counts, including one felony count each of continuous sexual abuse, oral copulation of a person under 16 and lewd act on a child. In addition, he pleaded to six misdemeanor charges, including four counts of indecent exposure and two counts of child molesting.

He returns to Department 108 on June 1 for sentencing in case BA433664. He is expected to be sentenced to 17 years, eight months in state prison and ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

Jackson admitted molesting six boys between the ages of 13 and 17 at various locations in Los Angeles, the prosecutor said. The incidents occurred between November 2010 and January 2015. He met the victims while working as a basketball coach at two separate schools.

The case was investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department
