ESCALON (CBS13) — An assistant football coach at Escalon High School was arrested Monday for reportedly requesting nude pictures from an underage student.
Police said a parent discovered the inappropriate messages sent to her 15-year-old daughter’s phone. An Escalon Police Department detective discovered assistant football coach Victor Perez Carillo, 26, had talked with a 15-year-old student on Snapchat.
Perez Carillo reportedly requested nude pictures and tried to meet with the student after school.
He was arrested for solicitation of child pornography and arranging to meet a minor for lewd purposes. He was booked in the San Joaquin County Jail.
Tuesday, the Escalon Unified School District released a statement about the coach’s arrest. They noted that they immediately contacted police once they learned of the inappropriate messages:
“Yesterday at approximately 11 am, a parent came to EHS to make us aware of an inappropriate online exchange between a student and a walk-on assistant football coach. The Escalon Police Department was immediately notified and began investigating. In addition, EUSD took appropriate personnel action to ensure there was no further contact between the coach and students. It is our understanding the coach was later taken into custody by EPD and all further questions or information about the investigation should be directed to their office.”
