Florida teacher arrested for enticing Belizean minors

A forty-eight year old teacher from Pasco County, Florida is in lockdown in Miami tonight after he attempted to travel to Belize to have sex with two underage girls. David Wendel Thompson, a Social Studies teacher at Centennial Middle School in Dade City, allegedly contacted the two Belizean girls via Facebook. Authorities say he had sexually explicit conversations with the girls, one thirteen and the other fifteen. Thompson went so far as to book a flight to Belize City, where he was to hook up with the girls, but that didn’t happen because, according to reports in the U.S. media, he was detained on Friday at the Miami International Airport as he attempted to board his flight. Thompson has been charged for enticement of minors, and if convicted faces a mandatory minimum penalty of ten years in prison.
