Former Local Girls Basketball Coach Faces Eight Years On Porn Charge

A former girls basketball coach who lived in Lubbock has pleaded guilty at Houston to child pornography charges.   Police say 49-year old Richard Romero made a 16-year old basketball player from Marble Falls send him nude photos of herself in 2008.  Romero coached the girl’s team that summer. He was living in a Lubbock apartment at the time. Romero was once a co-owner of the former Lubbock Lady Hawks, a professional women’s basketball team. Yesterday Romero entered a guilty plea in a Harris county courtroom as part of a plea agreement in which he will be sentenced to eight years behind bars.
