Former Teacher Who Solicited Sexy Pics Arrested After Blackmailing Scheme
In a story that has two twists - former Florida middle school teacher Andrew Montalvo, 31, was arrested for soliciting sexy photos from a former 16-year-old student. But this isn't your run-of-the-mill nude photo scandal.
Montalvo was only caught after the 16-year-old was arrested in an unrelated burglary charge. She and an unknown conspirator contacted Montalvo while they were in jail as part of a blackmail scheme.
According to media reports, she threatened to tell police about the pictures unless he paid her $2,000. Upon their release, he met with the two, paid them, and hoped it would all go away. Except it didn't: police intercepted the blackmailing plot and arrested Montalvo. He told investigators he didn't know how old the girl was, which seemed hard to believe since he was her teacher two years prior.
