Posted at 9:48 AM, Nov 22, 2018

FRANKFORT, Ky.– A 37-year-old Louisville man has been arrested and charged with allegedly seeking sex with a minor, Attorney General Andy Beshear announced Thursday.

Brandon Lee Dietz was arrested Nov. 21 when he reportedly traveled to a location in Louisville to have sex with a person he believed to be a minor. It’s alleged that Dietz requested the person he believed to be a minor send him sexual images over the internet before discussing meeting to perform sex acts.

A day after the online discussions, Beshear’s Cyber Crimes Unit intercepted Dietz as he traveled to meet the person he believed to be a minor. Cyber investigators were assisted by the Jeffersontown Police Department and the United States Secret Service in the case.

Dietz was charged with one count of seeking sex with a minor online, a Class D felony. He is currently housed in Louisville Metro Corrections with a $25,000 cash bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 23.

During the course of the arrest, cyber investigators learned Dietz is a girls softball coach in Louisville as well as a full-time middle school teacher with Jefferson County Public Schools.
