On January 4, 2019, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Detectives arrested 57-year-old Gregory Kosanke for lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14. Kosanke, who was already in custody awaiting sentencing on an unrelated case, is currently being held in the Sacramento County Main Jail without bail due to his charges.
It is believed Kosanke served as an assistant youth basketball coach in the North Highlands area recreational league prior to July of 2017.
Investigators suspect there may be additional victims in our community and are urging them to come forward. Anyone who believes Gregory Kosanke may have had inappropriate contact with a child is urged to contact the Sheriff’s Department Child Abuse Bureau at (916) 874-5194.
