The Canadian tennis pro accused of trying to lure a young girl into sex in Manatee County has been released from jail.
Pierre-Ludovic Duclos-Lasneir was released from the Manatee County Jail on bond Saturday. He had to surrender his passport and not allowed to have contact with anyone under the age of 16.
The 27-year-old is one of the top-ranked players in Quebec, along with being No. 610 in the world. He's training at IMG Academy in Bradenton.
Deputies say he targeted a 13-year-old girl he met at a school tennis court.
Authorities say a detective assumed the victim's identity and chatted with Duclos-Lasnier on the victim's cell phone.
Manatee County officials say Duclos-Lasnier solicited the girl for sex and sent a photograph of his penis. He offered to meet the girl and was arrested at the meeting point.
He faces charges including use of a computer to solicit a child to commit sex acts, two counts of transmission of harmful material to a minor and attempted lewd and lascivious battery.
