    Glen Thomas Kauffman, 53, was charged with two counts of lewd acts on a child younger than 14, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office, whose officials said that Kauffman’s position as a coach put him in a “position of trust with access to minors.”

    Prosecutors said Kauffman, who is on the board of directors for the University of California Irvine Alumni Association, molested one girl on multiple occasions and one other at least once.

    “(UC Irvine) is reviewing this situation and will comment when appropriate,” UCI spokesman Tom Vasich said, according to NBC Los Angeles. “Mr. Kauffman’s board membership is currently on hiatus.”

    If convicted as charged, Kauffman could serve a maximum sentence of life in state prison.

    His arraignment is scheduled for Monday.
