Florida School Employee Arrested on Molestation charges after Multiple Students reported Inappropriate Contact within and outside School Campus

Miami Lakes, FL: A school employee was arrested on several molestation charges in Florida. The employee is accused of inappropriate contact with many students.

According to records from the Miami-Dade County jail, Martin Zaretsky, who worked at Bob Graham Education Center, was taken into custody on Monday on seven charges of lewd and lascivious molestation.

Zaretsky is employed by the school in the IT department, as stated on the official website. All the victims were in their teen years and aged twelve to seventeen.

An arrest report states that Zaretsky attempted to have sexual intercourse with multiple students and repeatedly touched them inappropriately and sexually.

The victims were allegedly caressed by Zaretsky in a sexual and vulgar manner on several occasions across their breasts and buttocks while they were clothed.

He would escort children out of their classrooms so they could skip class without permission from school administration, and he texted two of the victims many times without parental authorization “in an attempt to gain favor and trust with the victims,” according to the report.

According to the allegation, Zaretsky would also take victims to his office after school, where he would give them candy before returning them to the school gate, where he would embrace them inappropriately.

The students claim he made sexual comments to them, such as, “You look good today” and “You have a curvy body,” according to NBC Miami.

A detective from the Miami-Dade County Public Schools Police stated that seven victims, ranging in age from twelve to fourteen, have been identified thus far during Zaretsky’s hearing on Tuesday in bond court.

He was released on a $70,000 bond and told to avoid the school and the people who were accused of being victims.
