BRADENTON (FOX 13) -

A 27-year-old Bradenton tennis pro facing sex charges was released from the Manatee County Jail on Saturday.

Pierre-Ludovic Duclos-Lasnier posted a bond of $33,000. As part of his pre-trial release the Canadian-born man surrendered his passport. He can't have any contact with anyone under the age of 16 and he can't leave the state of Florida without permission.

According to a Manatee County Sheriff's Office report Duclos-Lasnier attempted to lure a teenage girl he met while playing tennis on some courts at Jessie P. Miller Elementary School earlier this month.

He initially inquired about coaching the young lady but investigators say text messages between the suspect and the teen turned sexual in nature.

Duclos-Lasnier allegedly sent naked pictures of himself via cell phone. He is facing a slew of charges including using a computer to entice a child to commit a sex act, transmission of harmful material to a minor and attempted lewd and lascivious battery.

He is due back in court for arraignment on March 22nd
