Former Hollywood Christian Academy Track Coach/Teen Sex Connoisseur Gets House Arrest

David Tillman, the former Hollywood Christian Academy track coach arrested last year for sexing up a young girl on the team, pleaded guilty today to a reduced charge.

Instead of the initial lewd and lascivious battery charge dropped on Tillman, he pleaded guilty to a child-abuse charge -- which spares him prison time but will keep him on house arrest for a year, on top of four years of probation after that.

According to the probable-cause affidavits, Tillman and his uncle, then-29-year-old Raymond Holmes, picked up a couple of the girls from the track team at a McDonald's in March 2010.

Holmes, now 30, allegedly took a 16-year-old girl back to his place and had sex with her, according to police.

Tillman, then 19, was accused of taking a 15-year-old girl to his spot in Fort Lauderdale and having sex with her.

According to the police report, Holmes also had sex with the same 16-year-old girl in February 2010 during a team trip to Orlando.

The alleged sexing was broken up after the girl's mother found some saucy text messages between the two on the girl's phone, the report says.

The charge against Holmes is still pending, according to court records.
