Kevin Lamar Concepcion, 33, of Mooresville, was arrested Monday and charged with a violation of the North Carolina sex offender laws.

Concepcion, of 141 Sapphire Drive, Mooresville, was charged with a statute that prohibits registered sex offenders from volunteering for child-involved activities. Iredell Sheriff’s Deputy Craig Bess got information saying Concepcion was coaching a midget football team in Mooresvile, the Hornets.

Concepcion and the Football Commission had previously been made aware that he was not eligible by law to be a coach for a team of children under the age of 18.

Concepcion is registered for a 2003 conviction of misdemeanor sexual misconduct in Erie County, N.Y. Concepcion registered in Iredell County in May 2015 after moving to this county. He also has a conviction in New York for a 2005 offense of second-degree possession of a loaded weapon, and a 2013 conviction in the state of Ohio for trafficking in drugs.

Concepcion surrendered himself to Iredell County deputies and was given a $5,000 unsecured bond
