A Saratoga County youth sports coach is now facing federal charges of sexually abusing young boys.

Gary Ryan of Halfmoon has been indicted on nine counts including aggravated sex abuse and transportation with intent to engage in criminal sex acts. He's accused of assaulting boys as young as 5 years old on trips to Orlando, Boston, and Las Vegas.


A relative of one of the alleged victims says Ryan would gain the boys' trust and then abuse them.

Ryan will be arraigned on the indictment on Thursday.
