Ex-teacher in Florida pleads guilty to crimes against children

You might have read about the story of a teacher who has now pleaded guilty to sex crimes in Florida. The man had previously not done so, which calls into question his admission of guilt. If you find yourself in this kind of situation, you need to know that pleading guilty doesn't always mean you are admitting to a crime; it may simply be a way to get a plea deal or reduced sentence.

The ex-Florida teacher in this story has been accused of and now pleaded guilty to sex crime charges. According to a news report from Oct. 30, the man had been a teacher at a private school called Warner Christian School in South Daytona, but he was fired after teaching there for approximately nine years. He was not only a teacher but also the school's summer day camp director.

It's interesting that the 34-year-old man has now pleaded guilty, because in July 2014 he pleaded not guilty to the crimes against him. He had been charged with the production, possession, distribution and receipt of child pornography. It's been alleged that the teacher sexually molested one or more of the students who had been at an unauthorized sleepover at the Warner Christian Academy, but there have not been any charges related to child sex crimes so far.

In cases like this, you need to seek immediate help to defend yourself. Even if you have done nothing wrong, simply having your name associated with criminal activity can cause you a lot of trouble, lead to a suspension from your job or put pressure on your family.
