Ricardo Gutierrez, a walk-on varsity coach at Gunderson High School, was booked into Santa Clara County Jail on three counts of annoying or molesting a child under the age of 18, police said. The incidents all occurred in San Jose over the span of a year.
Gutierrez, who also coached the San Jose Surf youth girls soccer team, turned himself in Monday after an investigation revealed he molested three girls, ages 15-16, from November 2018 until November of this year, police said.
