TAMPA, Fla- Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a coach at Tampa Bay Technical High School for 6- counts sexual activity with a minor, on Tuesday.

“Students trusted this man as their coach, and as a parent myself, I am absolutely disgusted,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “Nobody should ever have their childhood ripped from them as this young victim did. After years of suffering, I applaud the victim for coming forward so this man could face the consequences for his despicable actions.”

Reginald Lawrence, 48, engaged in sexual relations with the victim, a student, during six different occasions at his home, HCSO says.
