Former Florida prep wrestling coach charged with posing as girl to get nude photos of boys

WESLEY CHAPEL -- A 22-year-old man who served as an assistant wrestling coach at Wesley Chapel High School has been arrested.

Carlos Perez is accused of using social media accounts, posing as a 16-year-old female, to befriend juvenile males.

Deputies said Perez sent them nude photographs of an unknown female, and in return asked for nude photos of the males.

He has been charged with two counts of transmission of material harmful to a minor.

Additional charges are possible as the investigation continues.

Perez is not a full-time employee of the school district and his contract was only for the high school wrestling season, which ended in March.

More information is expected to be released at a press conference later today.
