Florida teacher caught with student in Airbnb rental

January 5, 2019

WILTON MANORS, Fla. (AP) — A biology teacher is facing a criminal charge after deputies say he was caught with a 14-year-old student in an Airbnb rental in South Florida.

Authorities say Diego Guzman Carranza is facing a charge of engaging in lewd and lascivious act with a minor. He was arrested Thursday and remained in jail on Friday on $50,000 bond.

The Sun Sentinel of South Florida reports that the 14-year-old girl told authorities that she and Guzman Carranza had intercourse and that they had an ongoing sexual relationship.

No attorney was listed in online court records for the Miami-Dade County teacher.

An Airbnb spokesman in a statement to The Associated Press calls the behavior abhorrent and says the company has permanently banned the teacher from its platform.
