When Doral Academy Preparatory School hired Desiree Christina Cartin-Rodriguez to teach English, parents believed she had their children’s best interest at heart. In an autobiographical paragraph on the school’s website, the 27-year-old introduced herself to parents as the perfect role model for students.

“I am thrilled to introduce myself as your child’s English teacher,” she wrote, according to WPLG. “I graduated magna cum laude from Florida International University.”

During the school year, most students would agree that Cartin-Rodriguez performed her scholarly duties adequately. However, once a sordid rumor began to spread, it was becoming clear that the educator was involved in some unconventional extra-curricular activities.

The Doral Police Department has confirmed that Cartin-Rodriguez has been arrested and charged after an anonymous email led them to uncover her affair with a minor. The tip prompted police to question a male ninth-grader. What they discovered was enough to make any parent’s stomach churn.

According to detectives, the 15-year-old freshman student confessed that he and his married teacher would makeout in her classroom during the lunch period and after school. Eventually, she began picking him up in her car, where they would “engage in sexual conduct” off-campus. He would then go on to show police the most damning piece of evidence.

Detectives confirmed that the student showed them a video on his cell phone, in which Cartin-Rodriguez was captured performing oral sex on him, WSVN reports. The victim admitted that he had recorded other sexual encounters between his teacher and himself on his phone, prompting police to arrest the woman.

“The young man took the video; the video was not hidden,” said Doral Police spokesperson Rey Valdes. “It wasn’t like it was a hidden camera. She was aware that there was video. You can clearly tell by the proximity of her face to the camera that she was aware she was being filmed. I’m not going to go into details, but I can tell you it’s graphic and explicit, and we’ll leave it at that. I guess everybody can make their own summations.”

Cartin-Rodriguez was later arrested and charged with two felony counts of lewd and lascivious assault on a child. However, it was her justification for such crimes that has officers even more disturbed.

According to detectives, Cartin-Rodriguez excused her behavior, arguing that sex with her student was okay because it was what she considers consensual and she is in a loving relationship with the boy.

“She admitted to being involved in the relationship, even went as far as telling our detectives she was in love with the boy,” said Valdes.

Despite being married, Cartin-Rodriguez professed her undying love for the teen just before she was placed under arrest. She maintains that she has done nothing wrong because the boy was allegedly a “willing participant” in the affair.

“Even though [the student] may have been a willing participant, by law he cannot offer consent,” said Valdes, “so the term consensual is somewhat contradictory, because he cannot offer consent under the law.”

Doral Academy’s principal was quick to address the scandal and confirmed that Cartin-Rodriguez was immediately fired following the allegations. The school had reported contacted local law enforcement after rumors of the pair’s relationship surfaced.

Cartin-Rodriguez continues to maintain her innocence, ignoring the evidence showcasing her predatory and debauched nature mounting against her. Disturbingly, she is just one in a growing epidemic of teachers sexually abusing students.
