The coach Friday for allegedly touching a female student inappropriately posted bail later that night and is due back in court in July, a deputy district attorney said Monday.
The arraignment for Joshua Tatro, 25, is scheduled for July 5 at 9 a.m. in South San Francisco court, Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti said.
Tatro posted $25,000 bail at about 8 p.m. Friday after he was taken into custody without incident earlier that day, following a weeks-long investigation into the incident.
Authorities believe Tatro, who has worked as a water polo/swim coach at Aragon High School for the past year, had "inappropriate sexual contact" with a female student.
The student, a juvenile, said that during the past year, Tatro had "touched her inappropriately, according to San Mateo police.
The incident was first reported to school officials, who immediately contacted the San Mateo Police Department.
Tatro, an El Granada resident, was booked into San Mateo County Jail on one count of sexual assault on a minor and one count of lewd acts with a minor.
Guidotti said the district attorney's office hadn't filed charges against Tatro as of Monday morning and her office was still waiting to receive the police report.
