Florida teacher accused of luring teens over Snapchat and Instagram

Brock Smith

If it wasn’t for Kik, I could rename this site ‘Teachers and Snapchat’, but I digress.

30-year-old Brock Smith, of Naples, Florida is accused of allegedly using photo sharing apps Snapchat and Instagram in an attempt to lure teenage girls for sex. Smith is a teacher at a local high school. Before you ask, no, it was not with one of his students. In a 2016 incident, Smith allegedly messaged a 17-year-old girl over Snapchat saying he would visit her where she worked. If that wasn’t creepy enough, Smith ‘had sex’ with the girl in the workplace’s bathroom. He then stopped communicating with the girl.

In a more recent event, Smith is accused of messaging a 16-year-old on Instagram and asking her to add him on Snapchat. The conversation soon turned sexual and Smith allegedly sent the girl explicit pictures of himself. He is also said to have messaged the girl saying he was “free in the mornings to meet for sex” and mentioned the girl could come over when his wife was away. What a class act.

For those of you wondering, and I know some of you are out there, the age of consent in Florida is 18 and the poorly named Romeo and Juliet clause doesn’t apply to a 13 year difference in age.

Again I have to ask, what is it with teachers and Snapchat? As I’ve said before, I’m not cherry picking Snapchat stories that have teachers in them. It seems like I see more Snapchat stories with teachers in them than other types of predators.
