Basketball Coach's Alleged Sex With Minors Has Investigators Seeking Public's Help

Dominic Leon Evans, 49, of Perris could face life in prison if convicted.

Riverside County sheriff's officials are asking any witnesses or other potential victims of a Perris High School volunteer basketball coach charged with two dozen sex-related felonies to come forward.

Perris resident Dominic Leon Evans, who is 49 years old according to jail records, could face life in prison if convicted of multiple counts of lewd acts on a minor, sexual penetration with a foreign object, sodomy on a child under 16 years old and possession of child pornography.

Evans is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail at the Southwest Detention Center in French Valley.

According to the sheriff's department, Evans was arrested after investigators executed a search warrant at his house at 820 Perris Blvd. on Nov. 13.

The basis for the warrant was not disclosed.

Sheriff's officials said Evans volunteered as an assistant boys' and girls' basketball coach at Perris High School.

It wasn't immediately known if the alleged victims were students.

Evans is slated to appear for a felony settlement conference Thursday at the Riverside Hall of Justice.

Hello censored messenger: No, I do not think God is American. I do feel He greatly blessed America for many generations due to their humility toward Him and depending on Him for the things that were impossible to do without Him; the generations before us who claimed stake here in America had the humility and wisdom to see that they were only human and needed His guidance. Their prayers caused His Hand to stay upon this country for a very long time, MANY TIMES OVER! I do wonder how much more He is going to tolerate as so many have turned their backs on Him to "do their own thing". God to me is every single color and nationality! Furthermore, my husband, father, aunt, my husband's father and two of his brothers were all in the military, some experienced horrendous things; so bad that they could never talk about it, just like so many others who went to war after them and are suffering greatly in so many ways, because of it now! I do not take lightly that I have been privileged and yes, blessed, to have lived in this great nation for so many years! There have been millions of people for centuries, and now as you read this and daily, risking it all and sometimes dying to come here and enjoy and live in all of the blessings and freedoms in our great nation! It would be shameful for me not to see it as a gift from God's hand to be privileged to be here! You evidently perceived it differently than I meant it. Thank you.

I volunteer at my child's school all the time they r two different badges a Red badge which means u can volunteer but under supervision of a staff member at all time and a purple badge which mean u do have to get finger printed and background check. To be alone with child. So if this man did not have that than no children should have been unsupervised .. This is sad it had to happen.

Everyone here is losing sight on the main issue which is some young girl(s) lives have been forever changed. My heart goes out to the victims family(ies). Sad to say I dated a friend of his that would set him up with girls then cover for him. Just like Katie said he would brag about his encounters with the woman to me and my ex Fiance (notice I said ex) After dating his friend for a while found out both were on porn sites, sex sites, meeting up with woman for three somes and going to swingers functions together. Just gross! So when I heard about this on the news was surprised but, then really wasn't. Knew they both were what I considered sex addicts but wouldn't think he would go so low as to be with minors. We must also keep in mind sex is like a drug if addicted, one well eventually try to get a high higher then the next. I'm sick to my stomach!

I agree with lostforwords. Who knows how many girls and families are forever changed by this "man". Many people that have been molested go on to molest in the future. It's a sad domino effect. He did in fact mention the swinger clubs to me as well and CONSTANTLY pointed out any female that would walk by and ask me what I thought of her. I understand that he maybe a sex addict but molesting and sodamizing minors is a completly different kind of sickness. I imagine that type of act is more about power than sexual fulfillment.
