A high school substitute teacher has been arrested and charged after being accused of sexual offense against two students at a Florida school.
According to a news release by The Polk County Sheriff’s Office, 33-year-old Jerron Dunn of Lakeland, a substitute English teacher at New Beginnings High School, which is a charter school in Lakeland, was charged with Sex Offense on a Student by an Authority Figure (F2), and Transmission of Material Harmful to a Minor (F3). He was charged with sex offenses against two female students.

After 17-year-old and 18-year-old students told a guidance counselor that Dunn had allegedly sent videos to both of them of him masturbating via Snapchat, an investigation was started after the counselor told the Sheriff’s Office.
The 17-year-old told detectives that after borrowing Dunn’s charger one day, he added himself to her Snapchat. He allegedly sent her messages, asking the student to visit him at his house. She declined his offer, but he still sent her messages and then sent her a video of himself masturbating.
Meanwhile, the 18-year-old informed the detectives that after she accepted Dunn’s friend request on Snapchat, he allegedly told her via the app that she was pretty and wanted to have a relationship with her. She told him he was too old for her and that it would be “weird” because he was also her teacher. After sending several more messages, he also resorted to sending her videos of him masturbating. He then stated he wanted her to be a “friend with benefits” and to come over to his place to have sex.
After being busted, Dunn admitted to what the girls alleged he did. Detectives will do a forensic analysis of his cell phone as further charges are pending.
