Heiry Calvi: Florida teacher arrested for having sex with boy, 15, says she's pregnant
Heiry Calvi had been on leave after students at Bermudez Doral Senior High reported seeing videos of Calvi allegedly having sex with a student
DORAL, FLORIDA: A high school teacher, Heiry Calvi, 41, was arrested last Thursday, October 7 for allegedly engaging in a sexual relationship with a male student, 15, at JC Bermudez Doral Senior High School. Calvi is reportedly pregnant but won't say who the father is. Calvi informed the police about her pregnancy after being taken into custody but refused to comment on who the father is.
Calvi had been on leave since March after students at Bermudez Doral Senior High reported seeing videos of Calvi allegedly having sex with the teen student. Police started an investigation into the matter right away. It isn't clear if Calvi had any contact with the teenager afterward. In a similar incident, a 28-year-old former teacher from Texas, Katherine Harper was sentenced to six years in prison for having a sexual relationship with one of her students, last year in February.
A search of the teen’s phone allegedly found naked photos of the pair along with a string of WhatsApp messages wherein Calvi and the teen reportedly confessed their love for each other. Police also mentioned an audio recording of the teen telling another person to deny knowing about his alleged relationship with Calvi. The teacher had previously taught the teen when he attended John I Smith K-8 Center middle school, which shares the same campus as the high school, police noted. According to authorities, Calvi and the teen allegedly became close when she started tutoring him at his home late last year.
Following Calvi's arrest, a spokesperson for the Miami-Dade school district said in a statement that they were "disturbed" by the allegations. "When the District was apprised of these allegations in March, the employee was immediately reassigned to a non-school site location. The District will begin employment termination proceedings and will ensure the individual is prevented from seeking future employment with this school system, " the spokesperson noted.
Calvi is charged with lewd and lascivious battery, electronic transmission harmful to minors, unlawful use of a communications device; child neglect, offenses against students by authority figures, contributing to delinquency and possession of a firearm on school property. She was released on a $39,000 bond on Saturday, October 9.
