TAMPA – A former Pasco County schools transportation manager pleaded guilty today (Aug. 29) to child-sex-related charges, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida said.

Napolitano faces a maximum penalty of life in federal prison. A sentencing date has not yet been set.

According to the plea agreement, beginning in 2014, Napolitano, while employed by Pasco County Schools as a Transportation Manager, knowingly enticed a 15-year-old student from a local school to engage in sex acts. Napolitano had met the teen on the mobile application “Grindr.” Napolitano then engaged the student in an ongoing sexual relationship for several years. During that time, Napolitano invited the student to view his collection of child pornography, invited him to watch live productions of child pornography on the internet, and invited him to engage in group sex with other adults and minors. Napolitano also produced and distributed child pornography of the student.

Napolitano’s electronic devices contained conversations that addressed Napolitano’s interest in enticing and having sex with minors and detailed his pattern of targeting and achieving those sexual encounters. Napolitano also had amassed a large collection of child pornography and sexually explicit material, which included young children and sadistic and masochistic conduct.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
