A Tae Kwon Do instructor in South Florida was released from jail on $20,000 bond after he was arrested Friday for having sex with a 14-year-old girl, officials said.
Anthony Columna, 22, faces multiple counts of lewd and lascivious battery and molestation charges, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
His attorney Michael Zemon could not be reached for comment Saturday.
Authorities said Columna had sex with the young girl on at least two occasions at his home. The girl told officials she would skip school and Columna would pick her up, a report said.
Columna was arrested after officials recorded a call with the victim, where she asked Columna whether he used protection during their last sexual encounter, authorities said.
The judge ordered Columna to have no contact with the alleged victim following his release.
It was not known if the victim is one of Columna’s students or where Columna taught Tae Kwon Do classes.
