A former volunteer basketball coach at East Lake High was arrested Saturday on charges of child abuse and child pornography, the Pinellas Sheriff’s Office said.
Frederick T. Lowe, 56, of Palm Harbor is accused of abusing a 16-year-old student who was on the basketball team. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said in a news conference Saturday that Lowe is accused of making the boy strip and wear a diaper until he urinated on himself.
Lowe would then take off the diaper, smell it and wipe the boy’s genitals, Gualtieri said.
“This guy, this stuff, is as sick as it gets,” Gualtieri said.
Lowe and the boy met last summer through the basketball team, where he has volunteered as a coach for about two years, Gualtieri said.
