Former Westview High coach arrested

San Diego Police on Friday morning arrested a former Westview High School coach on charges of child molestation and false imprisonment in a case involving a Westview student.

A press release stated that on Nov. 16, the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force initiated an investigation concerning the possible molestation of a high school girl by Ryan Paul Carnell, age 28. Carnell was an assistant wrestling coach at Westview when the incident occurred. The incident occurred in early 2009 and did not occur on school grounds. However, the victim in this case was a student at Westview High School.

Detectives served a search warrant on Dec. 4 and arrested Carnell at his home in Rancho Bernardo.

Carnell was booked into the San Diego Central Jail and has been charged with child molestation and false imprisonment.

On a separate criminal matter, Carnell is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 8. He pleaded guilty to sending harmful matter to a minor. This case involved a different Westview High School student.
