LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A northern Kentucky youth sports coach has been charged with sexually abusing six boys entrusted to his care, slipping a sleeping pill to a 13-year-old who was staying with him.

A grand jury in Boone County on Tuesday revealed the 14 charges against 46-year-old Michael Schweitzer of Hebron. Schweitzer has been in custody since June 26 on charges of sodomy with an incapable person or someone unable to give consent, unlawful transactions with a minor and illegal possession of a controlled substance.

Police say Schweitzer slipped the pill to the one boy, then molested the youth while he slept.

Schweitzer had no listed attorney in Boone County court records.
