Soccer coach arrested on new child sex charges

Posted: Updated:
FRISCO, Texas -

The Frisco soccer coach accused of repeatedly sexually abusing young players is back behind bars.

Kevin Hilty, 42, was re-arrested Saturday on a fifth charge of serial sexual abuse of a child under 14. He was booked into the Denton County jail and his bail was set at $1 million.

Hilty was first arrested last week for alleged inappropriate behavior with four boys that he coached.  

According to an affidavit, the boys told their parents and police "Hilty would have them swim naked and play games" at his house.

During indoor basketball games, the boys said Hilty would make "members of the team take their respective clothes off by pressuring them and calling them names like 'wimp' and 'baby.'" Players who missed their shots would have their private parts touched by Hilty and the other children.

The boys also told investigators Hilty made them measure their "respective (private parts) with a wooden ruler with black numbers and against a chocolate bar."

After the parents and boys gave their statements, Frisco police brought in Hilty to question him.

The affidavit states he admitted to the skinny dipping and touching, "asking the children to play said games at this home and confirmed that as punishment for missing a shot or losing a game he had the children remove or lower their respective clothes."

He also "admitted to participating in the game and that he too would pull his pants and underwear down."

"Hilty confirmed that he told the children not to tell anyone and agreed that he did so because he knew that he was doing wrong, however he could not explain why he made the children do this," the affidavit states.

Hilty volunteered as a coach with the Frisco Youth Soccer Association. The organization had no comment.

Following his first arrest, Hilty sat on a High Five Interchange ramp threatening to jump off. Dallas SWAT officers spent three hours coercing him to get off the ramp safely and then he underwent a mental evaluation at Medical City Dallas.

His attorney said his suicide attempt does not mean he is guilty.

"I'm not sure what any human being would do with the stress and circumstances that Mr. Hilty was facing at the time," Attorney Paul Stuckle said. "These are false accusations and we will prove that in court."

Serial sexual abuse of a child is a first degree felony punishable by up to life in prison.
