It is very rare that I have to come on here and actually be disgusted with the story that I have to report but tonight is a different story. According to multiple reports in the Winston-Salem NC area, former Wake Forest assistant coach Jon Palmieri was arrested on Tuesday after allegedly soliciting a 14 year old girl for sex. The girl come to find out was a police officer on the other side. Palmieri continued conversations with the officer for a month before setting up a meeting on Tuesday where the police apprehended him when he showed up.
Palmieri was recently let go by Wake Forest when Rick Rembielak left the program in June. He had just completed his fifth season with the Deacons and was rising up the coaching ladder since his graduation from Wake Forest in 1999.
Special thanks to Donald Boyles for help with this report.
