A pregnant teacher has been arrested for having sex on camera with a 15-year-old girl student and sending obscene pictures to the boy.
Harri Calvi, 41, was removed from her Doral, Florida, classroom earlier this year after officials received a case referral from the Florida Department of Children and Families.
Kalvi was arrested last week and was released from jail on Saturday.
police told CBS Miami That the school removed him from class and put him on administrative duties where he had no contact with the students.
Calvi, a teacher at the John I. Smith K-8 Center, faces several charges, including crimes against students by authority, neglect of children without causing bodily harm, and placing a firearm on school property.
A police spokesperson said Kalvi had told a detective that she was pregnant, but did not know how far she was or who the father was.
According to Miami HeraldDetectives began investigating Kalvi after a video showed her having sex with a teenage boy.
Kalvi also reportedly sent explicit pictures of the teenagers on WhatsApp, and is said to have shown sexual videos of other children, leading to a police investigation.
According to reports, the pair expressed “love” for each other in a series of texts and the student even used Calvi’s credit card.
Calvi, who was seen holding his stomach as he left prison, was reportedly hired by Miami-Dade County Public Schools in 2001.
The district issued a statement saying it was “disturbed” by Kalvi’s arrest and alleged behaviour.
When he learned of the allegations, school leaders say that they immediately reassigned him to an administrative job at a non-school location.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools wrote in a statement to CBS Miami: “The district will initiate employment termination proceedings and ensure that the individual is prevented from seeking future employment with this school system.
“M-DCPS will continue to review its employee training to ensure that our workforce is fully aware of the district’s professional expectations and their ethical obligation to protect children.”
Ray Valdes, a spokesman for the Doral Police Department in Florida, where the age of consent is 18, said, “the onus is on the adult.”
