A Florida high school teacher is in hot water after students reported that they had seen a video he allegedly posted on social media exposing himself while at the school.
Police arrested 45-year-old Wesly Alvarez on Monday at the Ronald W. Reagan/Doral Senior High School in the city of Doral.
Students told officials that Alvarez had exposed himself in a video that appeared to be filmed at the school in front of a mirror. They saw it on the SnapChat video app.
“It is a video of him,” said Michael Granados, a student, to WPLG-TV. “He was like stroking himself, touching himself on camera, I’m guessing in one of the teachers’ bathrooms and (he) posted it.”
A criminal report said that the teacher was wearing the same clothing as the person on the social media video.
“He was wearing the same exact shirt that day; everything was exactly the same,” Granados said.
A spokesperson for the district released a statement about the claims.
“Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) is aware of a video of this individual circulating on social media,” read the statement. “As soon as the District became aware of these disturbing allegations, an investigation was launched and the individual was subsequently arrested. Conduct such as the one he is accused of will not be tolerated. As such, his employment with the District is being terminated and we will ensure he is precluded from seeking future employment with M-DCPS.”
Alvarez is facing a felony pornography charge over the accusations and was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.
A judge set bond for Alvarez at $7,500 and ordered him to stay away from children while the case is pending.
