Teacher faces charges for alleged sex acts with minor

In Fort Lauderdale and around the country, teaching can be difficult profession. There are lots of people demanding plenty from you, and it's a balancing act. One wrong move could result in career related consequences, even if it's just rumors being spread the way kids do. The problem with many of the systems now is that even a simple allegation of a crime can lead to a soiled reputation, lost trust from coworkers and students, or the loss of your job, and that isn't fair. If you find yourself in a situation like this man who has been charged with a sex act involving a minor, you may want to seek legal advice.

According to news from Dec. 02, a 22-year-old teacher is now facing serious charges including lewd and lascivious battery, and he has been placed behind bars. According to the story, he may have participated in sexual acts with a 13-year-old minor who he met through a mobile app on his phone. The man is allegedly a substitute teacher at Felix Varela Senior High School in Southwest Miami-Dade.

One thing you might find frustrating about this news is the report that students have been reported as saying they were surprised that he would do such a thing. At this time, he hasn't been sentenced or found guilty of any crime at all, so it's easy to see how quickly his reputation becomes tarnished throughout the school system and with the help of the media to spread the news.

If you find yourself in a situation where you're facing charges that could threaten your career, family or reputation, you may want to consider speaking with an attorney. There are many things you can do to help keep your name out of the media while you fight the charges, which can help you maintain as normal a life as possible during this trying time.
