Broward Biology Teacher Arrested for Having Sex With Ninth-Grader
According to police, a Broward biology teacher was arrested Tuesday for having sex with one of his students.
Eric Beasley, 24, was charged with nine counts of sexual assault or battery on a minor and two counts of sending obscene material to a minor after police discovered him and the 14-year-old victim engaging in sexual activity in the back of Beasley's car at 5066 N. Federal Highway.
The police report shows Beasley admitted that he was the victim's ninth-grade biology teacher at Zion Lutheran Christian School and that it was not the first time they had met there for sex.
Police reviewed the content on Beasley's cell phone and found he had sent her a photo of his penis and a video of him masturbating. Beasley freely admitted to authorities that from time to time the victim and he would kiss on school grounds during lunch breaks and that the relationship between the two started sometime around Valentine's Day of this year.
Beasley was released on $92,000 bond.
