LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities say a 39-year-old Las Vegas man is accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old special education student, and encouraging several teenage boys to do the same.

Records showed Friday that Leby Alas-Gomez was being held at the Clark County jail pending an April 10 preliminary hearing in Las Vegas Justice Court on conspiracy and sexual assault of a child under 14 charges that could get him life in prison.

Alas-Gomez’s court-appointed attorney didn’t immediately respond Friday to messages.

Alas-Gomez was arrested Sunday, after the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2mJcEqd ) a video depicting the girl involved in group sex acts began circulating in December at a Las Vegas high school.

The Review-Journal reports that at least three teenage boys also were arrested. They haven’t been identified because of their ages.
