CUTLER BAY, Fla. (WSVN) — Miami-Dade Police have arrested a Cutler Bay Senior High school teacher after he was accused of engaging in sexual acts with a teenage boy.

Police have arrested Bernardo Osorio, Friday, after he was charged with engaging in a sexual act with a familial child.

Miami-Dade County Public Schools released a statement which reads:

“Miami-Dade County Public Schools takes every precaution to safeguard the children in our care. The employee was taken into custody by Miami Dade Schools Police for having an inappropriate relationship with a minor is no longer employed by M-DCPS and is prohibited from seeking future employment with the school district. The allegations made against the employee are unacceptable and inexcusable and the school district will not tolerate such behavior.”

According to Osorio’s arrest affidavit, the victim is a 17-year-old male, who was 15 years old at the time.

The affidavit states that in November 2015, Osorio befriended the student, and between the months of November 2015 and April 2016, the victim performed fellatio on Osorio three times — twice at school and once in Osorio’s car. The affidavit also states that victim said Osorio initiated the sexual acts.

The affidavit also states Osorio admitted to having oral sex with the victim, and said it was wrong because he was the teacher and the victim was a student.

Osorio is being held without bond at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.
