A South Dade Senior High math teacher was arrested late Wednesday and charged with having sex with a student.

According to Miami-Dade Schools police, Bresnniel Jansen Mones, 32, had sex with a 17-year-old female student. In one instance, he received oral sex in his geometry classroom, according to his arrest report.

Police say they confiscated Jansen’s phone after he also admitted to sexting with the student.

A student posted a picture on Twitter reportedly of Jansen being led out of South Dade high in handcuffs, according to WSVN. He was officially arrested after 10 p.m.

Jansen was charged with two counts of sex with a minor and one count of transmission of harmful material to a minor. He has resigned after six years with the district, according to schools spokesman John Schuster.

Schuster said phone calls were made to parents of South Dade students to inform them of Jansen’s arrest. Students posted to social media sites about the allegations Thursday.

Jansen has been married since 2008, according to state records.

The incident is the second time in two years that a South Dade teacher has been accused of having sex with a student. In March 2012, police said physical education teacher Jimmy Francisco Vega lured a student off campus, gave her marijuana and then had her perform oral sex.
