A soccer coach who played for the University of Portland and the U.S. Men's soccer team has been arrested and charged with child sex abuse.

43-year-old Josephn Leonetti has arrested at his home.

Leonetti is currently a local club soccer coach in the Oregon City area and has a lengthy history of coaching girls soccer including coaching the West Linn High School Girls' soccer team from 1997-2006. 

The victim in this case was an unrelated 12-year old player on a club team coached by Leonetti.
