Bail was set at $75,000 for a youth director for the Boys and Girls Club who is facing lewdness charges.
Willis Brown, 44, appeared in Las Vegas Justice Court Tuesday morning. He is facing three counts of lewdness with a child under 16 years of age.
Brown worked at the Boys and Girls Club on Southern Highlands Parkway.
According to his arrest report, one of the three alleged victims told police, “Coach Willis” would stare at her legs and comment they were amazing looking. He even touched her leg from her upper thigh to her ankle. She also told police, that he discussed sex and told her that girls her age would throw themselves at him.
Two of the alleged victims told police that Willis hugged them and placed his hands on their buttocks, one of the alleged victims said he had touched her breast.
“He has a stellar background,” said Bob Beckett, Brown’s attorney. “I have at least 20 to 25 letters of outpouring of support for him saying what a great person he is, what a great coach he has been, what a wonderful influence he has been on the lives of children he has been in contact with. These accusations are completely out of character for him.”
When police interviewed Willis about the allegations, he denied touching the girls inappropriately or talking about personal issues.
According to the report, Willis said some of the girls dressed inappropriately.
His preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 30.
