St. Petersburg College baseball head coach Robert Francis was arrested Tuesday (December 6, 2011) in Orlando, Florida.
Francis was arrested in a sting operation. Francis contacted an undercover detective posing as a 14-year-old girl in an online chat room. After a conversation, during which Francis allegedly sent a naked picture of himself, he agreed to drive nearly 100 miles to have sex with who he thought was the 14-year-old girl. Francis showed up with condoms, a bottle of wine, and a video camera.
Francis, 31, was later released on a $5,100 bond. He was put on administrative leave by the school after this incident.
