GONZALES, LA (WAFB) - Investigators said a basketball coach faces charges after allegedly sending inappropriate text messages to a teenage girl.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office reported Adrian Steib Jr., 26, of Gonzalez, an AAU basketball coach, was arrested Wednesday. Deputies said he was booked into the Ascension Parish Jail on charges of computer-aided solicitation of a minor and indecent behavior with a juvenile. They added he was released the same day after posting a $10,000 bond.
Sheriff Jeff Wiley said the investigation showed Steib allegedly sent "strong sexually explicit comments" to a 15-year-old girl. He added detectives learned Steib also allegedly sent inappropriate pictures to the teen.
Authorities reported the investigation began last week after members of the girl's family contacted the sheriff's office.
The investigation is ongoing.
