LaMadrid is alleged to have responded to an advertisement placed by an undercover deputy on a "website known for prostitution and human trafficking.” The undercover deputy portrayed a woman and an underage girl available for prostitution. LaMadrid is said to have arranged a massage and sex with the two at a parking lot at the intersection of 19th Street and Lake Shore Dr.

“He wanted both females engaged in sex acts when he arrived,” the criminal complaint states, “He indicated he would enter the back of the vehicle and would engage in acts for the fee with the both the adult and juvenile.”

The coach arrived at the designated spot, and authorities state that he attempted to enter the decoy vehicle. Upon arrest, LaMadrid was found with the agreed upon amount for the sexual acts, and even the cellphone used in prior communication.
