    A Massachusetts hockey coach previously charged with sexual assaulting three different children has now been indicted on one count of indecent assault and battery on a child, according to Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan.

    Authorities said the boy is known to Christopher Prew, 31, of Marblehead, through his position as a coach.

    The district attorney said the alleged conduct occurred on multiple occasions in the victim's Newton home beginning in 2015.

    Prew was in Lynn District Court Feb. 14 for a dangerousness hearing after he was indicted for alleged child rape earlier that week.

    In court, it was announced that there are ongoing investigations into allegations made by eight children. Most of the children are from Essex County, with one of the accusers coming all the way from Canada, visiting Marblehead as part of an exchange program.

    The youngest child accusing Prew is 6, according to the court.

    Prew, a private hockey coach and owner of Hot Shot Academy, is accused of indecent assault and aggravated rape of a 9-year-old boy multiple times between September 2017 and January 2018. His attorney previously told NBC10 Boston his client was intimately involved with the 9-year-old child's mother.

    Prew is scheduled to be arraigned in Middlesex Superior Court for the new indictment on March 2.
