An American teacher was arrested in Florida on charges of enticing two Belizean girls to have sex with him.
Federal agents arrested 48-year-old David Wendel Thompson in Miami on Friday during a lay-over after returning to the U.S from Belize. Thompson was denied entry to Belize when he arrived, and sent back to the U.S.
When Homeland Security agents searched his bag they found condoms, a drug for erectile dysfunction, two new computer tablets and fliers for a Belizean hotel.
Thompson flew to the country last week but when he landed, Belizean officials turned him away.
U.S. Federal authorities said that Thompson flew from Tampa to Belize to see a 13-year-old and a 15-year-old girl and wanted to have sex with them.
According to federal documents, Thompson had sexually explicit conversations with the girls on Facebook.
Thompson promised one of the girls that he would make sure that she would always have money; and told her, “I want to always be special to [yo]u so let me b your first.”
The documents revealed that Thompson told the other girl:, “I just want to be [yo]ur first. That’s my present so I can be special to [yo]u.”
The 15-year-old responded, “Ok, you will be.”
Thompson also gave the girl instructions to delete the messages from her computer.
Thompson faces 10 years to life in prison if convicted.
