The Santa Ynez Valley soccer coach accused of having sex with a teenage girl is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Santa Maria Superior Court.

Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced child molestation charges against 42-year-old Buellton resident Jose Diaz on Tuesday.

Investigators say the crimes happened last year between August and November.

Diaz had been a coach with the local American Youth Soccer Organization girl's league for nearly two decades.
