EL CAJON, Calif. -- A former swim coach at El Capitan High School pleaded guilty Monday to molesting a 16-year-old female student at a private residence.
Ryan Campbell Stevens, 22, faces up to three years in prison when sentenced July 6 by Judge Peter Deddeh.
The defendant pleaded guilty to a single charge of oral copulation with a minor.
The girl reported the alleged assault the following day, the sergeant said.
Although the alleged molestation did not occur at El Capitan or at a campus-sponsored function, school officials notified county Child Protective Services, according to Catherine Martin of the Grossmont Union High School District.
Stevens served as a "walk-on'' coach at the Lakeside campus from February to May of last year and is no longer a district employee, Martin said.
