SEATTLE, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- A Maple Valley, Wash., youth baseball coach, arrested on child pornography charges, is now alleged to have committed multiple rapes of a boy.

David Scott Engle, 49, an attorney, was arrested Nov. 6 after various federal agencies traced an online purchases of $2,300 of child pornography to his home, court documents said.

King County, Wash., prosecutors contend he raped the unnamed boy "countless" times, and videotaped the incidents, the Seattle Post Intelligencer reported Monday.

Until his arrest on pornography charges, Engle was a coach and league president of a local baseball league for 11- and 12-year-olds, the newspaper said.

Engle has since been charged by King County prosecutors with three counts of child rape, court documents said.

Senior Deputy Prosecutor Cecelia Gregson asserted in court filings Engle went to great lengths to have contact with children while amassing a collection of child pornography, writing, "The state has overwhelming evidence that the defendant committed countless acts of sexual assault upon his victim for years without detection."

Engle took more than 1,400 photos and dozens of videos of himself and the child during the sexual assaults, King County Detective Marylisa Priebe-Olsen told the court, adding the assaults continued for years until Engle's arrest
