A former Celebration High School coach who was arrested on April 6 for sexual misconduct with students is now facing additional charges.

According to Osceola County Sheriff’s Chief Marcos Lopez, Samuel Enrique Figueroa, 43, now faces 13 charges as other victims have come forward to report his misconduct.

“During the investigation, it was discovered that he sent explicit photos to girls, a bribe in exchange for a good or bad grade,” Lopez said.

According to the police report, there are already 4 identified victims, all between the ages of 15 and 18, in the case against the former basketball coach.

“What we’re asking now is that all victims come forward and talk to us to make sure we give him all the proper charges that this guy deserves,” Lopez said.

One of the victims says that Figueroa asked him for nude photos.

Figueroa has been a high school coach since 2018. He is currently being held in Osceola County Jail on bond set at over $200,000.
