An investigation of sexual misconduct now spans three states, including Lubbock. It involves a former Midland Lee High School basketball coach.

New allegations of sexual misconduct are surfacing this week against Dan Simmons, III. This time, he's being investigated for alleged sexual misconduct while working as an assistant women's basketball coach at the University of Colorado. These allegations are among 40 possible counts of sexual misconduct.

Take a look at the Courts & Crime news from around Lubbock.

Last Spring, Simmons was indicted on three counts of indecency with a child in Midland and two here in Lubbock. He's accused of engaging in sexual activity with a minor female on the basketball team, during a tournament in Lubbock in December of 2003. He was indicted on similar charges in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Simmons will address the Lubbock allegations for the first time in a Lubbock courtroom on April 18th. In all, he faces 40 counts of alleged sexual misconduct. He then faces trial in both Midland and Albuquerque. If convicted on all counts, he could get 415 years in prison. Simmons is currently free on bond.

NewsChannel 11 contacted Simmons's attorney but we have yet to hear back.
