Utah volunteer band coach accused of soliciting nude photos
PLEASANT GROVE, Utah (AP) — A Utah high school volunteer band coach is accused of soliciting nude photos from students.
Pleasant Grove police credited their investigation leading to the arrest of 23-year-old Luis Mendez-Gamino to a 17-year-old girl’s quick response to an offer to pay her for nude photos.
According to police, the girl captured screen grabs of an Instagram message and reported the offer to her parents.
Mendez-Gamino was arrested Aug. 7 and he remained jailed Tuesday on 14 counts of criminal solicitation and sexual exploitation of a minor.
Court records don’t list a defense attorney for Mendez-Gamino who could comment on the allegations.
