SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) — An ex-soccer coach from Irvine pleaded guilty Friday to charges he made underage girls he met online make pornographic videos for him.

Robert Vincent Peace, 45, accepted a plea bargain and was sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison, according to Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Walker.

The former coach of the Irvine Blades must now register as a sex offender and do at least 85 percent of his sentence.

Peace was arrested when a family member gave authorities the man’s hard drive after coming across pornographic images on his computer.

Peace had more than 1,500 images and more than 300 videos on his computer, which featured a 13 and 14-year-old girl he met through an online video chat room.

The 14-year-old from Virginia sent the man inappropriate videos of herself for two years, according to Walker.

Peace posted pornographic videos of the 13-year-old online after threatening to do so if she didn’t send him more images.
