A former Cougar Football coach has plead guilty to attempted soliciting sexual exploitation of a minor. Dan Turner entered the plea yesterday after being accused and indicted after it was reported that he attempted to lure a Pigeon Forge Middle School student into his office to show her nude photographs on his smartphone. Turner was coaching basketball at the Pigeon Forge Middle School and football at Pigeon Forge High School at the time of the incident.
As part of the plea he admitted to asking the student to view the photo in question. As part of the agreement he will not spend any time in jail but he will have to register as a sex offender and he can never teach again.
Turner was terminated from his position at LaFollette Elementary School for inappropriate conduct.
