Soccer coach arrested for child porn

September 4, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
The FBI arrested 58-year-old George Bull, a youth soccer coach and substitute teacher on Wednesday. The Lake Forest man is charged with possessing child pornography, and having sexually explicit chat sessions with a 13-year-old Arizona boy.

Bull was arrested around 2 p.m. in his home in Lake Forest. He allegedly told investigators that he viewed child pornography on a daily basis.

Investigators said they found photos of Bull with his arms around three young boys, possibly from Orange County, apparently taken at Bull's residence.

Authorities say those photos are not pornographic, but along with other evidence, they do raise concern.

"The pictures that we've seen show physical contact between an unrelated adult male and children 12 and under. When you have contact like that, that's something that raises our concerns. Based on the messages he was sending to the child in Arizona, and then what's on your computer, indicates, thus, that we have somebody who has possibly got more victims out there that we don't know about," said Kevin Blair, Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Authorities say Bull was involved with the American Youth Soccer Organization in Orange County. He was a soccer coach, youth referee coordinator and an AYSO board member. Bull also told investigators that he is a substitute teacher at Esperanza High School in Mission Viejo where he helped special-needs children of all ages.

If you know of any potential victims you are urged to call the FBI at (310) 477-6565.

The FBI also hopes to find those three boys and the unidentified man in the pictures found at Bull's residence.
