Former Boys Basketball Coach Facing More Child Porn Charges

SACRAMENTO (CBS 13) — A former freshman high school basketball coach arrested in February for sexual assault on a juvenile is facing new counts of child pornography, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.

During a court appearance for the February arrest, Melvin Flemings, 22, was re-arrested on numerous counts of child pornography. Flemings was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail and is being held on $500,000 bail.

Flemings was arrested Feb. 4 for charges related to the sexual assault of a teen boy whom Flemings coached. Flemings was previously employed as the freshman boys basketball coach at El Camino High School and has also coached AAU teams in the Sacramento area.

Since Flemings’ arrest in February, detectives have continued to investigate and have found at least six more juvenile male victims, according to sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Jason Ramos. Investigators discovered evidence of child pornography and sexual contact between Flemings and the victims, he said.

Detectives believe there may be additional victims. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Anthony Brantley of the Sheriff’s Department’s Sexual Assault Bureau at (916) 874-5070.

    HAHAHAAHAH I told yall!!! this is my post from the last time he was arrested!
    Uhhh slap a nice sexy ankel braclet on that motha!

    I think this whole thing is very funny. I have been involved in this from the beginning and is one of the ones who got him investigated. this guy is a total creeper. Yea he may not look like it from the outsine but behind closed doors and basketball sleepovers his true colors shine bright. It’s going to be sad once the pictures he has taken surface and all the parents that stuck up for melvin will have to be told that their son is in all sorts of pictures. Ask your son if they have ever heard of a Lauren Foxx or Lauren Cauldwell. melvins fake myspace accound and facebook account

      Amen T-DAT. The justice system will see to it that this guy can no longer coach children. The truth is all coming out. And yes, whoever bailed him out the first time and the people that stood up for him, I hope they give a formal apology to the people they bad-mouthed for reporting this. They cared more about their egos than the children that were victimized. Shame on them.

    You’re in denial and you’re talking out of your ego. They have proof now. I agree with T-DAT. The truth always come out. Deal with it. Justice for the victimized children!

  5. brittney stewart says:

    The only person talking out of ther ego is both of you, Melvin is the only victim here an innocent person being acuused for something he would never do!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Justice says:

      He did do it. He’s guilty. THEY HAVE PROOF. Read the charges. Wake up sister.

  6. Justice says:

    And the people who stood in front of the courthouse making comments as if the child who accused him was a liar should be apologizing to all the children and their families who were victimized by this criminal. You shouldn’t go on television like that when you haven’t talked to the victims themselves. Now with 6 other kids pressing charges, those people should feel really foolish right now.
