Rob Lopicola, former WPTV weatherman, arrested on underage sex charges

Former WPTV NewsChannel 5 weatherman Robert J. Lopicola’s first appearance in court has been delayed until Wednesday morning after being arrested Monday on charges related to unlawful sexual activity with minors he met through Craigslist.

According to the probable cause affidavit, a 15-year-old male met Lopicola through a Craigslist personal ad. Authorities say, the 15-year-old lied about his age and told Lopicola he was 18.

When the teen confronted Lopicola about his age, he responded “14 to 16 years old is perfect baby,” according to the affidavit.

The affidavit also states that the teenager spoke with Lopicola about attending high school and told him what grade he was in.

According to authorities, after the teen and Lopicola corresponded on Craigslist, there were text messages and pictures exchanged between them. Deputies say the teenager later met with Lopicola in person and they engaged in sexual acts.

In 2010, Lopicola allegedly placed another personal Craigslist ad stating he was 18 years old and was a male seeking a male. A 15-year-old boy answered Lopicola’s ad, according to the affidavit.

The affidavit states the 15-year-old told Lopicola he was 16, but eventually told him his real age. When Lopicola found out the boy was underage, authorities said Lopicola continued a relationship with him.

You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the teen blows...

Considering all the adults (gay and straight) that are caught having sex with minors, it scares me to think of how many are NOT caught.

I hate to play devil’s advocate here but if the child lied about his age then how can the weatherman be charged? If he really believed the person was 18 or older then he was not intending to have sex with a minor.

Men have done serious prison time even when the girl showed him ID that said she wasn't a minor.

You seem to be confusing law with justice.

If I understand the article correctly,(...and it IS getting late here),it looks like both boys did end up telling him their real age and he continued his “relationships” with them anyway.

Null that is just wrong. If the girl had a fake ID then the courts should spend time finding out how she got it instead of going after an innocent man.

Mike I believe it. Homos want them young.

He looks as non-gay as numerous baseball or football players. No way does he look fruity.

I used to think sodomites could be saved, but Romans 1 makes it clear that God gives over such idolators to "vile affections" (:26) and a "reprobate mind" (:28). And Jesus said: "No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him:" (John 8:44a). If the Father has "given over" the reprobate, He is no longer going to "draw him."

Forecast:
