KEW GARDENS — The former Rochdale Village Little League coach, who has been arrested for allegedly molesting three of his athletes, was indicted on further criminal charges in Queens Criminal Court Tuesday after investigators found he sexually abused three other boys, the Queens district attorney’s office said.
David C. Hartshorn was arraigned on a new 52-count indictment on several charges, the biggest being predatory sexual assault, the Queens DA said.
Hartshorn was arrested in February and initially charged in connection with the alleged molestation of three of his players on the Rochdale Little League from July 2009 to January, according to the authorities.
Investigators said they discovered that he took advantage of three more boys, whose ages ranged between 12 and 17, during the same period, the Queens DA’s office said.
If convicted of these new charges, Hartshorn faces a minimum of 10 years to life in prison, according to a spokeswoman for the DA’s office.
