TAMARAC, Fla. (WSVN) — A charter school teacher has been arrested, Friday, for committing a sex crime on a minor.
According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, 34-year-old Sheldon Shane McDonald is a math teacher at Everest Charter School in Tamarac. He faces charges of promoting sexual activity on a minor under 16 years old.
An arrest affidavit states the 15-year-old victim was walking down a street in Lauderhill when McDonald stopped and offered to give the teenager a ride. Once the victim accepted the ride, McDonald asked the teen if he could perform oral sex on him and that he would pay him money.
McDonald then drove the teen his Tamarac apartment and performed oral sex on him. The arrest affidavit added that McDonald gave the teen $20 and allowed him to drive his car.
On Thursday, the man admitted to performing oral sex on the victim, whom he thought was 20 years old. Officials arrested McDonald on Thursday.
He has since been fired.
Parents heard about the news when they came to pick up their children, Friday afternoon.
“No words, no words,” said parent Randi Schueler. “I met him once, and I didn’t have that feeling about him, but you never know, I guess. You have to be worried, I guess, when your kids are at school all the time.”
McDonald appeared in court, Friday morning. The judge said he is to have no contact with children and has to wear a GPS monitor at all times.
“Oh, my God, freaking out,” said parent Paula Gomez. “I’m gonna ask my kid now, because this is not acceptable. I mean, I’m glad they let the teacher go, but it’s very concerning.”
McDonald has since been released on bond. He declined to comment on his charges.
