The director of Hialeah’s Bucky Dent Park, was arrested by city police last week and charged with eight counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor.
Erik Edward Blanco, 38, performed oral sex with a 17-year-old patron of the park between November and December 2013 inside the park’s “break room,” according to the police arrest report.
Blanco sent text messages to the teen “expressing how he would perform sexual acts on her” at the park located in the 2200 block of W. 60th St., according to the report.
Sexual activity between the two occurred during “closing hours,” the report stated.
Blanco, who has worked for the city’s park system since 1999, is currently in a “non-work status pending his termination of employment,” according to a police press release.
