Robert Lopicola, Weatherman Turned Personal Trainer, Arrested on Child Sex Charges

Lopicola. Really.
Former WPTV weatherman Robert Lopicola has been arrested on charges he had sexual relationships with two underage boys he met through Craigslist. The Wilton Manors 42-year-old, who now works as a personal trainer, allegedly met up with an anorexic 15-year-old from Boca Raton in October 2010 and performed oral sex on the boy in his car before the boy "ran home in the rain," according to the police report.

When the 15-year-old moved to Michigan, the two reportedly sexted on several occasions, with the boy sending nude photographs of himself to Lopicola. The boy met with police in January 2011 after showing his uncle Lopicola's personal training website,

Lopicola was allegedly busted a second time three months later, when he met with a 17-year-old boy in West Palm Beach and the boy's mother came home -- she called police when she allegedly found him hiding in the family shower; the boy said it was their third meeting after the boy responded to Lopicola's Craigslist personal ad.

Lopicola is scheduled to make his first appearance in court this morning; the police reports list charges for unlawful sexual activity with a minor, child pornography, lewd or lascivious battery, and child exploitation.

  This is something everyone, everywhere tells you, eat healthy. You are quiet exasperated aren't you? After all, who gets the time to make dinner after that long day or carry along a lunch at work? You don't have to! It's as simple as choosing the right dishes while eating out and buying the right packaged food. Though homemade food is way better, you can't always have that! So next time you go to the supermarket, make sure you get some fruits and frozen yoghurt. The probiotics present in yoghurt help your body with digestion. Granola bars are a nice alternative to pizzas and cream biscuits can give place to plain biscuits.
