Albuquerque Coach Arrested For Alleged Sex With Teen

Bond has been set at $50,000 for an Albuquerque volleyball coach accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl.

21-year-old Ryan Kapuscinski is being held on charges of criminal sexual penetration of a minor and criminal sexual contact of a minor.

Los Lunas police arrested Kapuscinski on Wednesday after receiving a tip from the New Mexico Attorney General's Office.

Authorities say the girl, who lives in Los Lunas, had been chatting online with Kapuscinski and admitted to having sex with him.

Police say Kapuscinski confirmed the sexual encounter.

Kapuscinski is a coach for the New Mexico Juniors Volleyball Club where he teaches girls ages 13 to 18.

Police say the victim is not a club member.

It was not known if Kapuscinski has an attorney.
