SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) — Orange County Sheriff’s investigators Thursday were seeking additional possible victims of a 20-year-old high school basketball coach accused of engaging in sexual misconduct with two minor girls.

Dwayne Jordan Richardson, 20, of Fullerton, was arrested Wednesday for Unlawful Sexual Intercourse with a Minor, Sexual Penetration and Oral Copulation with a Minor, officials said.

The investigation began after a Villa Park High School Resource Officer received information regarding alleged crimes involving a student at Villa Park as well as one who attends El Dorado High School in the city of Placentia.

Based on a preliminary investigation, authorities suspect Richardson has been engaging in sexual misconduct with at least one of the victims since June 2014.

The suspect was booked into the Orange County Jail and has since been released after posting $100,000 bail.

Richardson was a “walk-on” girls basketball coach at Villa Park High School leading investigators to believe there may be additional possible victims.

Anyone with information was asked to call Orange County Sheriff’s Dept. Special Victims Unit Sgt. Wade Walsvick at (714)647-7418 or (714)647-7000. Anonymous tips may also be submitted to Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS (855-847-6227) or at occrimestoppers.org.
