Owner of fencing club in Nashville arrested for sex crimes involving teen student



NASHVILLE – Youth Services detectives Monday night charged the owner and head coach of Music City Fencing Club with two counts of inducing sexual activity by a minor for paying a 15-year-old female student to send him explicit photos and videos of herself, including one video in which the teen said she engaged in “dirty talk” at his request.

Robert Charles Piraino, 37, was taken into custody this afternoon at the fencing club, 2543 Lebanon Pike. Search warrants have been executed at the business and Piraino’s Church Street residence. Cell phones and computers, as well as other items, have been seized.

The teen alleges that Piraino’s inappropriate sexual conduct with her began in 2019 and continued into the spring of this year. She also said that Piraino had her take pictures of her feet with his phone, asked for pairs of her socks, and sent her messages of him having sex with other women.

Piraino is jailed in lieu of $150,000 bond.

Parents whose children took lessons from Piraino at Music City Fencing Club are encouraged to talk with their kids and report any concerns to the MNPD’s Youth Services Division at 615-862-7417. Detective Brian Zullo is leading this investigation.
