A former north suburban cheerleading coach charged with sexual exploitation is now facing tougher bond conditions.

Thirty-year-old Jeffrey Tackes already faces a misdemeanor charge after allegedly coercing two cheerleaders from his squad at Niles North High School to take part in a game of strip poker in February.

The Daily Herald reported three other girls have come forward to say he acted in appropriately with them.

Tackes is banned from any contacts with the girls and must make weekly visits to a pretrial services office.

He resigned from Niles North after his arrest.
