(KMGH-TV) — A former Boulder youth hockey coach admitted having online chats where he asked players to send him nude photos and challenged the young teens to masturbation races on Facebook, according to a newly released police report.
Zachary Meints, 24, was arrested by Boulder police in December on five felony counts of Internet sexual exploitation of a child. Meints, who remains free on $35,000 bond, is scheduled for arraignment on May 30.
Police said Meints began the lurid online communication with boys as young as 13 in 2009 when Meints was an assistant coach with the Boulder Hockey Club, according to the recently unsealed arrest affidavit. His alleged conduct continued when he moved to the Rocky Mountain RoughRiders youth hockey club, police said.
