LIVERMORE -- A Livermore man has been charged with molesting a child while he worked at a summer soccer camp, police said.

Jesse Schlicker, 26, was charged Thursday with committing a lewd act on a child under 14 while he was working as a speed and strength coach in the soccer camp program at Cabernet Indoor Sports on Patterson Pass Road in Livermore, police said. He was arrested Tuesday night.

Police said only that the incident took place this week. They did not specify if the incident took place at the facility or another location, nor if the victim was enrolled in the soccer camp.

Employees have cooperated fully with the investigation, a police spokeswoman said. General Manager Hope Vice said she had no comment.

Police did not release details of the incident, and the charging documents from the Alameda County District Attorney's office were not available later Thursday.

Schlicker was arraigned Thursday afternoon on the felony charge, which carries a maximum sentence of eight years in prison if he is convicted. The 2006 Livermore High School graduate and varsity soccer player was bailed out of Santa Rita Jail in Dublin but declined to comment Thursday evening.

Police continue to investigate the allegation and are asking parents to speak to their children who had contact with Schlicker. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Livermore police at 925-371-4760.
