EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A former Creswell High School baseball coach has admitted that he tried to arrange a sexual encounter with an underage prostitute.

The Eugene Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1HbDhE9 ) that 25-year-old Garrett Nevergold of Eugene was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail and three years’ probation. He pleaded guilty to one felony count of first-degree online sexual corruption of a child.

Nevergold was arrested in March when he arrived at a Eugene motel, believing that he would be meeting up with a 15-year-old girl. He had been unaware that the online prostitution advertisement he had responded to had actually been posted by an undercover detective.

Nevergold apologized in court Wednesday and said he is “extremely embarrassed” by his actions. He must now register as a sex offender.
