DAKOTA CITY – A former South Sioux City High School assistant soccer coach charged with sexually assaulting a student will remain in custody, a judge ordered Tuesday.
Nathan Rogers first appeared before Judge Edward Matney in the Dakota District Court, who determined there was likely a reason for Rogers’ arrest.

Matney continued Rogers’ $ 1 million loan. Rogers can leave the Dakota County Jail on bail of 10% or $ 100,000. If he was on bail and released from prison, he would have to wear a GPS tracking device, be out of touch with anyone under the age of 19, and not be on school or campus.
A preliminary hearing was scheduled for April 27 in the Dakota County Court.
Rogers, 25, from South Sioux City, was arrested Friday on charges of sexual assault on a first degree child and child molestation.
He is accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl who told police she went to Roger’s home in December to get a vaping pen he was given for her. She said Rogers pulled her onto a couch and held her during the attack, which ended when she freed an arm and hit it. According to court records, Rogers told investigators that the sex was consensual.
The girl reported the alleged attack to a South Sioux City High School employee on March 3. A district official said Monday that Rogers’ employment at the school ended the same day, but because it was a staffing issue, he couldn’t tell if he had resigned or was fired. Rogers had served as the soccer team’s recipient and defensive coach.
