A former coach with a youth athletics group is facing child porn charges and accused of sexually assaulting a child.

Glenn Portwood, 50, was arrested on felony charges and was arraigned on Nov. 5. Portwood is accused of possessing child pornography and aggravated sexual assault of a child.

The president of the First Colony Youth Basketball Association said Portwood coached his own child's team as recently as last year. The president said the group does background checks on all volunteers. He said Portwood's check was clean last year.

The president also said none of the association's kids are involved in the investigation. He said the group has had no contact with Portwood this year.
