    Glen Thomas Kauffman is charged with molesting two 10-year-old girls between 2014 and 2017. On Monday, Sept. 18, 2017, he made his first court appearance.

    A Laguna Niguel softball coach, who was also a UC Irvine board member, made his first appearance in a Santa Ana courtroom Monday on charges of molesting two 10-year-old girls.

    Glen Thomas Kauffman, 53, of Laguna Niguel, was charged Thursday with two counts of lewd acts on a child younger than 14, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office. He also faces a sentencing enhancement for multiple victims.

    Kauffman is accused of molesting one of the girls multiple times and once with another, according to prosecutors. The sexual assaults are alleged to have taken place between August 2014 and August 2017, prosecutors said.

    Kauffman's status with UCI is under review.

    "UCI is reviewing this situation and will comment when appropriate," said UCI spokesman Tom Vasich. "Mr. Kauffman's board membership is currently on hiatus."

    Kauffman's arraignment was rescheduled for Sept. 25.
