Howard men's coach nabbed in youth sex sting

Howard men's soccer coach Joseph Okoh was arrested on felony charge last Friday after police said he went online to solicit a person he thought was a 13-year-old girl for sexual purposes.

Okoh, 40, had taken over the Bison program last year after longtime coach Keith Tucker was fired.

Okoh was charged with one felony count of using a communications system to solicit a person under 15 years old with lascivious intent. He is accused of traveling from his home in Arlington for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity with a person he thought was a 13-year-old girl. The person was actually an undercover deputy.

Okoh was suspended from all university activities and duties pending completion of the investigation.
