A 26-year-old coach faces felony charges for allegedly taking a high school girl to get body piercings.

Victor Gutierrez is charged with one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a fourth-degree felony.

According to Las Cruces Police, the 16-year-old girl missed part of a class and was marked absent on January 17. Police say the school notified the girl’s mother, who then questioned her daughter, and learned Gutierrez had taken the girl to a local tattoo shop where she got her nipples pierced.

New Mexico State Statute pertaining to tattooing and piercings states that minors must have a parent or legal guardian present and written consent must be provided to receive services. Detectives learned that Gutierrez, who is not related to the girl, facilitated the acts to enable the 16-year-old to be pierced without her parents’ consent or knowledge.

Gutierrez was arrested March 3 and was released the same day on a $10,000 cash bond.

According to LCPD, Gutierrez and the girl knew each other from club and high school soccer. Investigators determined Gutierrez is a club soccer coach and a coach with the Mayfield High School boys’ soccer team.

Detectives also learned that Gutierrez may have taken other underage girls for piercings as well. Anyone with information on other similar incidents is asked to call police at (575) 526-0795.
