Washington worked as a volleyball coach in multiple schools and clubs, including Independence High School, Evergreen High School, and Stingray Volleyball Club, police said. 

As of Wednesday, police said he worked at Overfelt High School in San Jose.

But the East Side Union High School District said in a statement that officials "took immediate action" to remove Washington from all of its school sites pending the charges. 

District officials said they would continue to cooperate with police. 

Washington was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail on one count of lewd and lascivious acts on a minor age 14 or 15, police said. He has bailed out of jail and is due to be arraigned in April, the Santa Clara County District Attorney said.

Efforts to determine whether he has a defense attorney were not immediately successful.
