A former youth basketball coach at the Alderwood Boys & Girls Club in Lynnwood, Washington, is serving a 20-year sentence for sexually assaulting five young girls between 1998 and 2000.

David Etheridge, 60, was arrested in January 2004 and charged with first-degree rape, child molestation and possession of child pornography.

Etheridge raped two girls when they were between ages 9 and 11 and sexually assaulted three other girls -- one who was only 6 years old, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in the case. At least two of the victims were children he coached through the club, according to police.

Police said Etheridge used his position as a father, coach and neighbor to gain access to his victims.

"While the defendant portrayed himself as an involved parent and remained active in the community of the Alderwood Boys and Girls Club, he possessed hundreds of images of child pornography on his home computer," police said in a probable cause affidavit.

More than 800 images were collected from a disk belonging to Etheridge. Many of the images showed naked elementary school girls in sexual positions, according to police.

Etheridge pleaded guilty to the charges and sought a special treatment program at sentencing, but a judge rejected the request and instead imposed the full sentence. After his prison time is up, he can have no contact with the victims and cannot be involved in any youth sports under the terms of his sentence. He must also pay restitution to the victims.

Administrators from the Alderwood Boys & Girls Club, a branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County, did not respond to requests for comment.

In a letter from prison, Etheridge said his conduct had no connections to the club.
