“Two teachers preying on students is two too many. I don’t know what either of these suspects were thinking, but rest assured, if you groom, solicit, inappropriately talk to, or touch any student here in Polk County, we will lock you up and do our best to make sure you won’t have access to children again.” – Grady Judd, Sheriff

Sheriff Judd will discuss the arrest at 1:30 p.m. today (December 7, 2023) at the Polk County Sheriff’s Office Operations Center located at 1891 Jim Keene Blvd., Winter Haven.
