Former basketball coach arrested on more charges
LAS CRUCES — Nearly a year after being arrested on child porn charges, a former Las Cruces middle school basketball coach was in cuffs again.
Las Cruces Police have now charged Erik Khan, 33, with criminal sexual contact of a minor and practicing medicine without a license.
This stems from an accusation that he performed physicals on students at Picacho Middle School without being a doctor.
Last year, investigators claimed they found hundreds of images of child porn on Khan's computer.
"This is extremely unfortunate, but I also want the community to know that our partnering physicians have provided their services to athletes for years without incident," said Las Cruces Public Schools Superintendent Stan Rounds.
"Nevertheless, our hearts go out to these students."
