Georgia baseball trainer reportedly arrested on felony charges involving minor, fired by UGA
Disturbing news to share from Athens as Georgia has reportedly fired a baseball trainer following a recent felony arrest.
Jason Castleman was in his first year with the Bulldogs but he won’t see the conclusion of the Bulldog season on the diamond because he has reportedly been fired by Georgia allegedly having illegal contact with a child and providing obscene material with the child.
Following this discovery, Castleman was booked in Athens-Clarke County Jail according to Chip Towers of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Here are the charges levied against Castleman according to the police report:
Castleman is charged with electronically furnishing obscene material to a minor; use of a computer service to seduce, lure or entice a child to commit an illegal act; obscene Internet contact with a child; and solicitation of sodomy. Each charge carries with it a $50,000 surety bond.
Castleman was hired by Georgia in September after spending two seasons working at Central Michigan.
