It’s Monday morning: do you know where your assistant football coach is? Not so fast, Ponte Vedra High School in Florida. Here’s more from MSNBC:
Instead of being in school, a Ponte Vedra High School employee was in court on Tuesday after being arrested and accused of using the Internet to solicit sex from a 16-year-old boy. Investigators tracked William Turner Online for several weeks after police received a tip from an out-of-state law enforcement agency that the 46-year-old man might be trying to contact underage boys.
Earlier this month, police were notified that Turner had contacted a teenage boy on the Internet and e-mailed the teen pictures of male genitalia. A cyber-crime investigator located the boy and his parents and was given permission to take over the boy’s Yahoo account. Officials said Turner sent another e-mail offering to meet the teen for a sexual encounter on Monday morning at the McDonald’s on Emerson Street. When Turner arrived, police were there to arrest him.
“I couldn’t even express how disappointed I was,” said Ponte Vedra High School Principal Craig Speziale. “I’m angry. I’m angry that this has happened. I’m angry for everyone associated with this school. It casts a dark cloud.”
