PARKER - Prosecutors say they have added more charges against a youth baseball coach the 9Wants to Know investigators exposed for raffling off prizes he didn't own.

Kyle Dodd now faces three charges: theft under $500, forgery and "fraud in effecting sales-false statement." All three are misdemeanors.

He could face up to 18 months in jail if convicted, according to an 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office spokeswoman.

Parker Police cited Kyle Dodd in 2012 with "fraud and deception prohibited," a misdemeanor charge.

9NEWS aired a story in May 2012 that showed Dodd having young players from the Parker Bears team sell raffle tickets for some prizes he did not own or have access to.

Dodd has previously denied that he did anything wrong.

9Wants to Know's investigation also discovered Dodd had stolen money from a kids' organization in 2003 and put false statements on his Regis Jesuit High School biography page, where he was on the football coaching staff.

Days after the story aired on 9NEWS, Dodd resigned from his position with the Regis Jesuit team and also resigned as coach of the Parker Bears.
