Youth Worker Charged in Child Rape
The (Tacoma) News Tribune’s Adam Lynn is reporting that the King County Prosecutor’s office has charged 25 year-old Luis A. Rodriguez of Lacey, a former youth program director at the YMCA in Puyallup with one count of second-degree child molestation, one count of third-degree child molestation and one count of third-degree child rape. According to the report, Rodriguez was also an assistant coach for Puyallup’s Cascade Christian High School football team and a volunteer at Champions Centre church in Tacoma.
Court records indicate that much of the alleged abuse happened at a house on church grounds and at Rodriguez’s Federal Way home.
