NORTH HIGHLANDS (CBS13) — A former assistant youth basketball coach and radio personality from North Highlands is behind bars, charged with lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14.

Gregory Kosanke, 57, was previously charged with inappropriately touching a 10-year-old girl. He was arrested last Friday by Sacramento County Sheriff’s detectives and was already awaiting sentencing in the previous case.

On Dec. 4, he was convicted by a jury of two counts of child sexual assault.
