Former Royal Palm Beach teacher, coach jailed on charges of luring child 

By Post Staff

At the end of August former Royal Palm Beach High School teacher John R. Springer told a 17-year-old student and volleyball team player who he coached that he had something to tell her but he couldn’t write or text it.


He called her that night, Palm Beach County School District Police allege, and told her that he thought she was “hot” and liked her personality.

The attraction soon escalated into him sending nude pictures to the teen. At the 27-year-old teacher’s request, the teen sent nude pictures to him.

Springer now faces criminal charges of using a computer to solicit a minor and three counts of transmitting material harmful to minors.
