A Rowland Heights man who coached youth baseball is facing charges that he committed lewd acts on three boys, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Friday.
Carlton Murray Harris Jr., 47, is scheduled to be arraigned April 15 at the Pomona courthouse on one count each of committing a lewd act on a child under 14 and continuous sexual abuse, along with five counts of committing a lewd act on a child 14 or 15, according to Deputy District Attorney Leslie Bouvier.
The crimes allegedly occurred between 2014 and 2017 at Harris’ home with three boys ranging in age from 11 to 15 years old, according to the prosecutor.
Harris was arrested Monday by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and was being held in lieu of $530,000 bail, jail records show.
If convicted of the charges filed Thursday, he could face a potential maximum state prison term of more than 27 years, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
