KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The founder of a Kansas City-area youth soccer club has pleaded guilty to a sex crime involving a teen player and will be sentenced next month. The Kansas City Star reports that 37-year-old Jason Cummins pleaded guilty last month to attempted aggravated indecent liberties with a child between the ages of 14 and 16. He has also registered as a sex offender. Investigators say Cummins targeted a girl he had coached since she was 9.

Since his guilty plea, he’s turned operation of the club over to his wife.
