A Murrieta soccer coach arrested on suspicion of soliciting sex from a minor has pleaded not guilty.
Court records show Daniel Ryan Kelly, 26, of Temecula, pleaded not guilty to an "arranged meeting with a minor, at or about arranged time and place," which is a felony charge. He also pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of annoying and molesting a child.
Kelly, who worked as the junior varsity girls soccer coach at Murrieta Valley High School, was arrested Monday by Murrieta police upon their investigation into his alleged solicitation of a 16-year-old female student athlete.
Kelly also worked for a number of soccer organizations in the Murrieta-Temecula area.
Kelly entered his plea while in custody earlier this week. He released from jail Wednesday after posting $25,000 bail, sheriff's jail records indicate.
He is due in court again Feb. 6.
