Vero Beach teacher arrested for sex with student

Posted by Elizabeth Stewart - email

VERO BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Detectives with the Indian River Sheriff's Office are arresting Donald Irvin III.

He's been a teacher at Saint Edward's Upper School for just under four years. A 16-year-old student reported having sex with Irvin five times on school property, the last time being earlier this month.

Detectives reviewed text messages between the two as part of the investigation. According to authorities, in many of those messages, 32-year old Irvin and the student told each other they loved each other.

Published reports say school officials did a background check on the teacher, but nothing came up in the system.

Irvin is charged with two counts of sexual battery.
