OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma coach is behind bars after police say he inappropriately touched a teenager.

Authorities say 39-year-old Aaron Howell is facing one count of lewd acts with a child under the age of 16 after officers learned about the alleged crime.

The girl’s mother called police after learning about the incidents.

According to the report, the teen told police Howell put his hands down her shirt, fondled her and also put his hands down her pants at a house when no one is around.

However, she told officers they had not had sex.

The affidavit claims Howell is a coach at Moore High School and a teacher for an alternative school in Norman.
