45-year-old Barry Loman is the head pro at Lake Spivey Golf Course in Jonesboro, GA. Husband. Father. Grandfather. Sounds like an all-around great guy, except for the part where the FBI arrested him when he allegedly arranged online to meet a minor for sex up in Catoosa County, drove up there from Peachtree City Sunday afternoon and met the FBI instead, getting his ass arrested for child exploitation. Ooops. Barry, you may have just made a mistake there buddy.
Loman, who also runs a golf academy that involves children, has been suspended from Lake Spivey Golf Course pending the legal investigation. According to the golf course they did a background check when he was hired and he doesn’t have anything in his past that would have shown up on it. He also works with the children in groups rather than one on one.
Loman has been charged with Aggravated Child Molestation – Criminal Attempt, Criminal Intent to Manufacture Child Pornography, Reckless Driving and he has also been charged under the Computer Pornography and Child Exploitation Act of 1999. All four charges are felonies (not sure how the reckless driving is a felony, perhaps in concordance with the other charges) and he is currently lodged in the Catoosa County Jail.
