More child sex charges for youth hockey coach Tony Desilva

POLK COUNTY, Fla. - A youth hockey coach accused of trying to solicit sex from teenage boys here in the bay area is facing new charges.

41-year-old Tony Desilva was arrested last week at his home in Massachusetts on charges out of Polk County.

Deputies say he would contact 16-year-olds over Facebook, use explicit language and give graphic details of what he wanted to do to them.

Desilva is now facing two additional counts of traveling to meet a minor and two counts of encouraging a child to engage in sexual performance.

He was already charged with 10 counts of using a computer to seduce a child. He is currently being held on no bond.
