California youth basketball coach Jamien Nicholas Lovell Jackson charged with sexual assault


A young basketball coach from Riverside, California is facing charges of sexually assaulting one of his players.

Jamien Nicholas Lovell Jackson, 41, sexually assaulted one of the players he coached for a travel basketball league last year, according to the Riverside Police Department.

Police arrested Jackson on Thursday and took him to the Robert Presley Detention Center. He is accused of lewd and lascivious acts on a minor, annoyance of a child and sending material harmful to a minor.

Court records show he was released on Friday on $55,000 bail.

Police told FOX 11 that Jackson had been associated with young girls’ basketball and sports photography in the Inland Empire area for several years. It is not known if there were other victims.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Edward Vazquez at 951-353-7136.

It was not immediately clear whether he had retained the services of a lawyer who could speak on his behalf. Jackson’s next court appearance is scheduled for August 19 at the Riverside Hall of Justice.
