BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — An area JV High School Cheerleading Coach was just arrested by the Boynton Beach Police Department after she allegedly tried to solicit a student. Kassidy Sottilare claimed that she was in a romantic relationship with the 14-year-old girl whose parents turned in Sottilare after their daughter showed allegedly inappropriate social media communication.

The Boynton Beach Police Department charged Sottilare with “sex offense — authority figure soliciting, engaging in romantic relationship with a student,” “obscene communication — travel to meet after use of computer to lure child,” and “driving while license suspended — habitual offender.” Police provided BocaNewsNow.com with this narrative from the arrest report:

Boynton Beach Police Officers responded to the BBPD lobby, making contact with 14 year old VICTIM and her mother in reference sexually explicit content being sent to 14 year old’s phone. The VICTIM provided a sworn statement where she advised the prior evening the JV cheerleading coach at her school, later identified as Kassidy Sottilare, friend requested her via Instagram. Victim advised that she accepted the friend request and Sottilare then wrote her about wanting to spoil and f–k with her. Victim advised that Sottilare confirmed knowing her age to be 14 years old with Sottilare providing her age as 27 years old.

Victim/mother then provided BBPD with consent/access to Victim’s cell phone and Instagram account. A digital extraction from the VICTIM’s phone provided Instagram direct messages reflective of the statement given by the VICTIM. BBPD Detectives then took control of the VICTIM’s Instagram account making contact with Sottilare possessing as the VICTIM. Direct messaging through Instagram with Sottilare then directed their conversation to cell phone text messaging where the VICTIM was
again identified as 14 years old. Sottilare texted about sex experience with the VICTIM and smoking with the VICTIM. Sottilare made statements via text like she knows what girls like, how they like it and where the rights spots are. Sottilare provided that she wanted the VICTIM to sit on her lap and give her a kiss providing that the VICTIM’s clothes did not have to stay on. Via text message Sottilare repeatedly kept attempting to have the VICTIM meet with her.

BBPD, still possessing as the 14 year old, eventually advised Sottliare that the VICTIM was sneaking out the house where Sottilare provided that she would come to the VICTIM’s location. BBPD Officers then made contact with Sottilare at the 3400 blk of High Ridge Rd in Boynton Beach where she had been directed to that location as where the VICTIM would meet her. Upon contact Sottilare was alone driving a 2018 blue in color Toyota FL #234QLP and officers observed a cell phone her possession which showed
the geo-location provided for the VICTIM and the last number of texts.

Due to the totality of events Kassidy Sottilare was placed under arrest for Offense Against Student by an Authority Figure, Traveling to Meet a Minor and Driving While License Suspended Habitual.

Post Miranda warnings Sottilare then provided that she had a romantic connection to the VICTIM, knew the VICTIM’s age to be 14 years old, found the VICTIM Online, admitted to the texting with the VICTIM and admitted to coming to pick the VICTIM up.

Kassidy is being held in the Palm Beach County Jail. No bond was set for the charges of “sex offense, authority figure soliciting, engaging in romantic relationship with a student,” and “obscene communication — travel to meet after use of computer to lure child.” Bond is set at $3,000 for the count of driving on a suspend license while a habitual offender.
