Riverside Police Arrest Riverside Soccer Coach Jordan Cohen Accused of Sexually Assaulting 15-Year-Old Girl

A community youth soccer coach from Riverside suspected of sexually assaulting a 15 year old female player was being held today in lieu of $150,000 bail.

Jordan Russell Cohen, 25, was arrested Monday night and booked into the Robert Presley Jail in Riverside on suspicion of lewd acts on a minor, according to Riverside police. Cohen’s arrest came two days after detectives started investigating the allegation he assaulted the victim in the Orangecrest neighborhood of Riverside, according to police.

Cohen’s arrest is just more example of the epidemic of child sexual abuse in youth sports. The experienced California child sexual abuse lawyers at Manly, Stewart& Finaldi have represented victims of abuse by coaches throughout Southern California and  won a 31 million dollar settlement on behalf of 22 victims of Torrance wrestling coach Thomas  Snider. They are currently representing parents of alleged child abuse victims at Kennedy High School in La Palma, Segerstrom High School in Costa Mesa and Polytechnic High School in San Fernando. In all of these cases the alleged molesters were coaches.

Manly, Stewart & Finaldi has represented hundreds of child sexual abuse victims of coaches in California .In each of these cases we have helped victims and families get justice by conducting a thorough investigation of the coach and those who employed him. In many cases we have discovered that employers knew that the perpetrator was a danger to children and either did nothing or actively covered up the crimes.

Investigators are asking any other potential victims to come forward .Police believe there could be others “based on the suspect’s statements to detectives” as well as the circumstances of the case.
