METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

A former Jefferson Parish playground coach was indicted Thursday by a grand jury on 18 counts related to the sexual abuse of boys, including one for aggravated rape, which carries a mandatory life sentence.

James Prince, 44, who had coached at Girard Playground in Metairie, was arrested in October after two brothers accused him of sexual abuse. News of his arrest brought more victims forward, and a search of his home resulted in the seizure of numerous pornographic images of children, according to investigators.

The victims said Prince would show them pornographic movies while prompting them to masturbate with him. One victim said Prince performed oral sex on him. Another alleged that Prince had videos of sexual acts between himself and other young boys.
