Lovell was reserved at the Sacramento County Main Jail and delivered Monday, as indicated by prison records. Lovell was charged Monday and booked to return for another consultation on Sept. 27 in Sacramento Superior Court.
Lovell likewise faces five lawful offense accusations for this situation, as indicated by court records. The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office on Monday documented a criminal protest accusing Lovell of two checks of speaking with a minor with the purpose to perpetrate a sex offense, two tallies of sending hurtful material to a minor, and one tally of organizing a gathering with a minor with a sexual goal.
Agents from the Sheriff’s Office and the Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force captured Lovell last week.
Sheriff’s officials said Lovell worked for the Tracy Unified School District and was a girls’ sophomore basketball coach at Kimball High School from 2010 through 2015 before he worked as the girls’ varsity basketball coach at West High School. Lovell resigned from the district in September 2019.
