David Solomon pleads not guilty in molestation case

Solomon, 47, accused of molesting at least 2 boys in Cooper City


COOPER CITY, Fla. – A former Cooper City youth baseball coach pleaded not guilty Monday to child molestation charges.

David Solomon, 47, who was arrested late last month, is accused of inappropriately touching two 11-year-old boys who played with Solomon's son in the Cooper City Optimist League. Prosecutors believe that there may be more victims.

According to arrest reports, Solomon touched the boys' genitals and buttocks.

Detectives said the sex acts happened in Solomon's car and at sleepovers at the coach's home.

Solomon was previously arrested on molestation charges in 2000 while working as a physical education teacher at Hialeah Gardens Elementary School.

In that case, Solomon and his attorneys claimed that the two boys, who were under the age of 14, were lying. One of the boys eventually recanted his claims, and the state dropped the charges against Solomon.

Solomon remains in the Broward County Jail without bond.

His next hearing is scheduled for Oct. 22.
