Rob Lopicola Child Sex Arrest: The Creepiest Text Messages You've Ever Seen
Former WPTV weatherman (and, uh, New Times' 2002 best weathercaster) Robert Lopicola was arrested Monday on charges he gave fellatio to two teen boys who responded to ads he had posted on Craigslist.
Police say the alleged sexual relationships started via text message -- and they included some of those sent to Lopicola's 15-year-old victim. Here are some of the lowlights, but be warned: Those without a morbid curiosity need not click through.

It appears his victim stopped responding around this time. Three months later, a mother allegedly discovered Lopicola hiding in her shower; police say he was there to meet her 17-year-old son. He faces charges of unlawful sexual activity with a minor, child pornography, lewd or lascivious battery, and child exploitation.
