Ex-Rhode Island football coach held on child molestation charges

A former Rhode Island Pop Warner football coach is being held without bail on four counts of child molestation.

State police say in a statement released Saturday that Richard Perry of Warren also previously worked as Bristol Little League umpire and coach and Kickemuit Middle School discipline officer and custodian.

State police arrested Perry on Thursday following a six-month joint investigation with the Bristol police department and an indictment handed down by a Providence County Grand Jury.

The 55-year-old Perry was immediately arraigned at Providence Superior Court on two counts of first-degree child molestation and two counts of second-degree child molestation. Conviction carries up to 25 years in prison.

Magistrate Susan Kenny ordered Perry to be held without bail.

It was not immediately clear if Perry has legal representation
