A man who once served as assistant coach of a North Highlands youth recreational basketball team was convicted by a jury this week of two counts of child sexual assault, according to court documents.
Gregory Kosanke was found guilty of one count of lewd and lascivious conduct and a count of attempted lewd and lascivious conduct involving a child, both felonies.
Kosanke was arrested by Sacramento County Sheriff’s authorities following a March 2016 incident that allegedly occurred during a team event and involved the inappropriate touching of a 10-year-old girl.
Kosanke, 55 at the time of the incident, “sexually abused the young friend of one of his family members,” according to a news release by the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office.
