Former youth baseball coach accused of molesting boys asks for bail

A former Cooper City youth baseball coach accused of inappropriately touching at least two boys who played on his team asked a Broward County judge Thursday to grant him bail.

David Solomon, 47, is being held in the Broward County Jail without bond and has pleaded not guilty to child molestation charges.

Solomon’s attorney tried to cast doubt on the allegations, claiming there wasn’t proof evident or presumption great enough to prove that Solomon was guilty.

The victims’ mothers took the stand Thursday, and Solomon’s attorney showed text messages from one of them that he said showed she was angry with the coach for not giving her son enough playing time. He also implied that her son was unaffected by the alleged incidents and is back to playing baseball as if nothing happened. That is when she broke down on the stand
