Okeechobee Sheriff: Teacher tried to solicit minors online

A guidance counselor in Okeechobee County faces faces charges of soliciting minors online.

Brad Guyton Mims, 47, was arrested by Okeechobee County Sheriff on Friday.

Mims allegedly messaged a 15-year-old victim on Facebook. The victim told officers that Mims is her guidance counselor and had made her feel uncomfortable in the past by staring at her breasts and touching her shoulder.

The girl told authorities that when Mims first messaged her, he said he saw her account when he was looking at her father’s page and wanted to say “hi.”

With permission from the victim’s father, a detective took over her Facebook account and messaged with Mims, where he continually told the victim that she couldn’t tell anyone because it would get him in trouble.

Mims asked approximately 15 times to send a picture of her breasts. He sent her two photos of two different penises saying both were his. He continued to say if anyone found out they were talking it would ruin his life.

When Sheriff’s officers interviewed Mims, he admitted to talking with the girl online. Officers discovered there was another minor and that case is still ongoing.

Officers also found cocaine was also located at his residence. He told officers he smokes once he gets home from school.
