A Cumberland County man charged four years ago for alleged attempts to rig youth basketball games has been arrested for sexually assaulting a child.

Michael J. Kman Jr., 49, of Enola, was charged Thursday by East Pennsboro Township police with felony counts of rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault, sexual assault and unlawful contact with a minor, according to court documents.

Kman was additionally charged with misdemeanor counts of indecent assault and corruption of minors.

He was sent to Cumberland County Prison on $1 million bail, and has a preliminary hearing scheduled June 9.

Kman was a coach for the Catholic Youth Organization program at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Enola when state police in 2010 accused him of offering PIAA referees up to $2,500 to fix the outcomes of games.

Police said Kman sent the referees numerous text messages requesting they officiate certain basketball games and favor a specific team.

He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of harassment in September 2010.
