Authorities: Mooresville football coach violates registered sex offender law

A youth football coach was arrested Tuesday for a violation of the North Carolina sex offender registry laws, according to the Iredell County Sheriff's Office.

Kevin Lamar Concepcion, 33, has been charged with a statue that prohibits registered sex offenders from volunteering for child involved activities.

A deputy with the Iredell County Sheriff's Office received information that Concepcion was coaching the Mooresville Hornets Midget Football team in Mooresville, NC.

Concepcion and the football commission had previously been told that he was not eligible by law to be a coach for a team of children under the age of 18.

Concepcion is registered for a 2003 conviction of misdemeanor sexual misconduct in Erie County, NY. Concepcion registered in Iredell County in May 2015 after moving to this county. He also has a conviction in New York for a 2005 offense of 2nd degree possession of a loaded weapon and a 2013 conviction in the state of Ohio for trafficking in drugs.

Concepcion surrendered himself to Iredell County Deputies and was given a $5,000 unsecured bond.
