A girls softball coach from Rossville has been arrested for attempting to have sex with a 12-year-old girl.

Charles Allen Casseday, 31, was arrested May 8 by the Northwest Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Casseday had been involved with a local youth athletic program as a coach for a 10-13-year-old girls softball team, said detective David Scroggins with the Rossville Police Department.

Cassedy reportedly arranged to meet with a 12 year old girl at a local park for indecent purposes when the text message was intercepted by the mother of the child.
