Miami Springs Gym Teacher Accused of Having Sex with Teen on Campus

Thirty-two-year-old Carlos Usatorres, a former full-time gym teacher at Miami Springs Middle School, was arrested last December on charges that he was having repeated sexual encounters in his office with a 13-year-old female student. The arrest has been kept quiet until now, but the attorney for the girl's family is finally talking and notifying other parents at the middle school.

The alleged ongoing abuse was discovered when another female teacher at the school observed several instances where the girl and Usatorres were alone. At one point she opened the door to his office and observed the startled girl jumping off the teacher's lap.

"The allegations are that this was an ongoing sexual abuse of a young girl," attorney Jeffrey Herman, who is representing the girl's family, tells WSVN.

Though the arrest occurred in December, many parents tell WSVN that they weren't made aware until the station asked. The Miami-Dade School Board retorts that they immediately removed Usatorres from contact with students. He has been assigned to another position while he awaits trial for the charges.

This guy in incapable of doing such thing. I don't only know him but i know her as well , and the sick female that said such things. Yes she has been after his job for so long but now she didn't only get his job. She ruined his name and she couldn't care less. Look at his "friends" commenting with such petty knowledge of there "old time friend" Charlie is a wonderful person. Yes the media has ruined him and his name. Do you see that right? The girl got her minute of fame the female that wanted the coaching spot got it but with out the respect that the students had for Charlie. And what did Charlie get is accused of the unthinkable. Charlie, hope your doing fine and keep your head held, Fuck the rest. Natalie/Mikey

I have known Coach Charlie for nine years. Unfortunately he has been tried in the media already. In Miami Dade County you are guilty until proven innocent. I have never known him to compromise himself and have observed him interact with kids for years. The teacher that "reported" him has long been after his job, especially after he spurrned her affections. She is a horrible person and a loud mouth. She is vindictive and I believe she escalated something innocent into something dirty. If he is guilty he will avoid a polygraph exam. IF he passes one though, I hope the same people that have publicly accused him will publicly apologize. To Simone Worsie, if your son was accused, would you want him to get a fair trial--or is the media the venue you would prefer him tried? Anyone can accuse! You can be arrested of anything in this day and time--all it takes is one false collaborating witness to an accusation by a minor! Simple! What if that witness is a disgruntled kid who has problems at home? Does a million dollar law suit against the school district blend with the very tear jerking mother that gets drunk, hates men and needs rent money because she lives here illegally? Ops! What if the accuser is mentally ill, is targeting anyone that has failed her, or she got caught with a boyfriend and to get out of trouble needed to deflect blame on an innocent person (male or female)? Happens every day! People lie, cheat and steal--yeah even kill-- over anything that will make them money, stay in the U.S. illegally or achieve their self-centered goals. Think about it!

I would never in this life time say sorry, I for one had to go there and at 12 was diddled by some old man and that school could care less for their students. I was lucky enough to be strong and end up with a great life.

And this is the lovely piece of crap school I was blessed going to! That school system is one of the worst in the United States. I have to unfortunately carry the traumatic scars of having to go to school there. They will probably blame the student for being a whore. Good job Miami Springs you have officially lived up to your standers.

Unfortunately if you dig deeper at both Miami Springs middle and senior, you will find that this is somewhat of an epedemic

Wow... I know Charlie and his family.. He was my P.E teacher about 8 years ago.... He never even looked at or had any close encounter with any of the girls. I hope this is not true.

DISGUSTING.

How can the school board say that they have "assigned [him] to another position while he awaits trial for the charges." .... excuse me?! Pitiful.
