The following is from the U.S. Attorney's Office:

A Missouri man who coached youth tennis has pleaded guilty to soliciting a minor girl he coached to give him photos of herself naked, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

Rex Haultain, 56, Parkville, Mo., pleaded guilty to one count of soliciting child pornography. In his plea, he admitted that in 2009 he told a minor girl he was coaching that she sexually aroused him. While traveling to a tournament in the summer of 2010 he showed her a picture of his penis on his cell phone. In the fall of 2010 he began asking her to send him naked pictures of herself. He also sent her text messages stating that he was sexually aroused by her.

Sentencing is set for Oct. 28. Both parties have agreed to recommend to the judge a sentence of not less than 60 months and not more than 78 months in federal prison. Grissom commended the Overland Park Police Department, the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Scott Rask for their work on the case.
