A New Mexico high school coach has been arrested for allegedly trying to get a 14-year-old student to have sex with him. Michael Puebla, 26, was a basketball coach at Dora High.
According to court documents, police found Snapchat messages between him and the girl from 2017. Police say the messages were sexually explicit, with Puebla asking the girl to spend the night with him and be his girlfriend.
They say he also arranged to meet the girl and became upset when she brought a friend to the meeting. Police began investigating in 2017 and issued a warrant in March 2018. It’s unclear why it took so long for them to arrest him.
