LAKE CITY, Fla. -- (WJXT) -- Rian Rodriguez, 27, a former Fort White High School soccer coach, was sentenced to 18 months in prison for crimes committed against a teenage girl, News4Jax learned Sunday.

Rodriguez will also have to register as a sex offender. He was given credit for six months and seven days served. He will also be on probation for eight years once his sentence is complete.

Rodriguez had a plea agreement approved by the Circuit Court of the Third Judicial Circuit of Florida on June 5 on charges of interfering with custody and sex with a minor.

In December 2017, Rodriguez was caught in Syracuse, New York, with a 17-year-old girl who was a soccer player at the high school where Rodriguez coached.

Authorities said Rodriguez was planning to buy bogus identifications so the two could leave the country.
