Garden Grove High Girls Basketball Coach Allegedly Sought Porn of Teen Girl

The girls junior varsity basketball coach at Garden Grove High School was arrested Monday for allegedly trying to get a 15-year-old girl to send him pornographic photos of herself.

Michael Engelmann, 51, of Anaheim, was taken into custody shortly after 1:30 p.m. and booked into Orange County Jail on one felony count of communicating with a minor to elicit child pornography, according to Sgt. Ray Bex of the Garden Grove Police Department's Crimes Against Persons Unit.
