A Brockton football coach accused of posting video of a sexual assault online is being held on bail — and told to stay away from the city of Boston — after he was arraigned on charges of child rape and sex trafficking.
Kharee Louis-Jeune, 33, is behind bars on $50,000 bail, as set by Judge Paul Tressler at Dorchester District Court in Boston on Thursday.
Louis-Jeune has volunteered as a football coach at Brockton High School and worked at the Old Colony YMCA as an “on-call youth care advocate,” according to Suffolk District Attorney Rachael Rollins.
According to prosecutor Ashley Polin from the DA’s office, Louis-Jeune met an underage person online in 2019. Polin told the court that Louis-Jeune initially believed the person — who the DA’s office didn’t identify even by age or gender — to be 18 or older, but he “soon learned” the person was not of legal age of consent.
But after that, Louis-Jeune “continued to sexually abuse the juvenile,” the DA’s office said.
“He filmed one of the assaults and shared the video online, including on the site OnlyFans,” Rollins’ office said. OnlyFans is a site where people post videos which are often, if not always, risque that others can pay to see.
Prosecutors said the underage person asked Louis-Jeune to remove the video from social media sites — but he said that he would only do so if the person performed more sexual acts, according to Rollins’ office.
The underage person this year went to Boston Police, telling them that Louis-Jeune had abused them and posted the video. The rape is alleged to have taken place in Boston.
Detectives from the BPD’s Crimes Against Children Unit secured a search warrant for the information on the OnlyFans user account that posted the video to the site, and found that it “was linked to Mr. Louis-Jeune,” according to prosecutors.
Louis-Jeune is charged with aggravated rape of a child, trafficking of a person for the purposes of sexual servitude, enticement of a child under 16, extortion and possession and distribution of child sexual abuse material.
Tressler, the judge, ordered that if Louis-Jeune were to make bail, he would have to stay away from and have no contact with the person in the video, stay away from the city of Boston, stay off social media and have no unsupervised contact with children.
Rollins in a statement said, “It’s important that our children — including older children, who remain vulnerable to both online predators and manipulation by adults in positions of trust and authority — know that they can turn to the adults in their lives for help, especially with things that make them uncomfortable, anxious or scared.”
