    A youth football coach from Chula Vista will spend eight years in state prison after he admitted to committing lewd acts on a child.

    Carlos Ojeda, 20, served as a volunteer coach with the eastern Chula Vista Pop Warner football organization and a contract tutor at Lauderbach Elementary School.

    Ojeda was arrested in June on charges of alleged child molestation involving a victim under the age of 14 according to Chula Vista police.

    A Chula Vista elementary school tutor and volunteer football coach was taken into custody, accused of sexually abusing a teenage relative. NBC 7s Danya Bacchus spoke with parents about the arrest - a father, who identified himself as Dana, who lives near the school and another parent, Tri Gonzales.

    On Wednesday, Ojeda pleaded guilty to committing a lewd act with a 10-year-old relative.

    Chula Vista police launched their investigation after the minor disclosed that Ojeda had been molesting them since July 2011.

    Detectives said they did not believe there were additional victims.

    Ojeda will be sentenced July 16.
