A cheer coach in Texas is facing charges of sexually assaulting a student-athlete.

Lex Luis Bazan, a 23-year-old coach at the San Antonio-based Texas Wolverine All-Stars academy, was arrested Friday after he was discovered trespassing at La Vernia High School in La Vernia, Texas, KSAT-TV reported.

Bazan was caught on La Vernia High School campus on Oct. 15, according to an arrest affidavit, as reported by KSAT-TV. He was arrested on the child sex charge on Friday, records show.

The affidavit said Bazan was “initially untruthful” when questioned by security staff, however, he later told them he was there to visit “his cheer athlete.”

Officers issued Bazan a criminal trespass warning. After officers interviewed the girl he came to see, according to the affidavit. The teen told officers that Bazan was visiting her to provide “Plan B” emergency contraception medication to her.

The teen told police in later interviews that Bazan “began making comments to her” three years before the alleged assaults began in March. The assaults occurred at the cheer academy, according to the affidavit.

According to Bexar County Jail records, Bazan’z bail was set at $90,000.
