LITTLE LEAGUE COACH ARRESTED FOR SEEKING SEX WITH 10-YEAR-OLD & CHILD PORN

DeFuniak Springs, Fla— A little league coach is behind bars after investigators discover he is actively soliciting to engage in sexual acts with girls as young as 10 years old.

On August 20th a concerned citizen from Walton County came forward to report a suspect trying to solicit her via social media to allow him to perform sexual acts with her minor children for money.

 

Walton County Sheriff’s Office investigators confirmed 27-year-old Jason Cody Hughes was using two fake social media profiles to solicit mothers to allow their children to perform sexual acts for tens of thousands of dollars.

Using undercover methods WCSO Investigators were able to confirm the information and actively engage Hughes as he asked, graphically and specifically, to solicit a 10-year-old for sex and sent child porn already in his possession.

Hughes is a coach for DeFuniak Springs Little League based out of Walton County.

“He was entrusted to coach girls who were in his target age group,” said Sheriff Michael Adkinson. “And in the most despicable and disgusting way possible he betrayed that trust.”

Hughes was arrested on September 15th on charges of using a computer to solicit parent/guardian consent to engage in sexual conduct with a child, directly promoting sexual performance by a child, and transmission of child pornography via electronic device – all felonies. He was transported and booked into the Walton County Jail. This investigation is still ongoing and additional charges may be forthcoming.
