BREAKING NEWS – Port Orange, Florida – A former gym teacher in Florida was warned multiple times about his inappropriate behavior with students before being arrested for a sex crime in February.

Former Atlantic High School teacher Arin Hankerd was arrested on February 10 for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student in January. Hankerd resigned before he could be terminated.

But newly-revealed school investigations show that Hankerd’s inappropriate behavior with students had been documented multiple times.

Hankerd explained his position to a judge during his arraignment. “I openly admit that I made a mistake with the girls I was involved with that were younger than the girl I am involved with now. With those girls it was lust, but with my current girlfriend, it’s true love. And we will be even more public three years from now, when I take her to the senior prom.”
