NH says ex-Maine coach sought to lure girl, 14

The Associated Press

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — New Hampshire police records say a 34-year-old former Portsmouth school district technology department employee used a computer to try to lure a 14-year-old girl for sex.

Kenneth Kimber, of Portsmouth, was also the head coach of the boys varsity basketball team at Noble High School in Berwick. He was fired from both jobs last month. He is facing a variety of charges.

The Portsmouth Herald is citing a police complaint that alleges Kimber sent sexually explicit photos of himself to the girl on Feb. 4 and Feb. 9. He's also alleged to have contacted her via social media and invited her to have sex. All are felonies.

Kimber is free on bail. He's scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Portsmouth. It's not clear if he has an attorney.

Police say the case remains under investigation by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
