He made the minor online, Hillsborough deputies say.

TAMPA – Hillsborough deputies have arrested and charged a middle school history teacher from New York City with having sex with a minor.

Zeshaan Naqvi, 31, was charged with seven counts of Unlawful Sexual Activity with a Minor and one count of Traveling to Meet Minor After Using Computer Services/Devices to Solicit Certain Illegal Acts.

Deputies said that about 1:30 a.m. Saturday (Jan. 23), Naqvi picked the victim up at their Tampa residence and brought them back to his hotel room. After a few hours, Naqvi returned the victim home. At about 1 p.m., Naqvi picked the victim back up and together they returned to the hotel where they engaged in sexual acts.

Naqvi was arrested at the hotel, 915 S Falkenburg Road, where he admitted to deputies that he knew the victim was underage.

“It never ceases to amaze us the lengths predators will go to, to get what they want,” Hillsborough Sheriff Chad Chronister said. “In this case, a middle school history teacher booked a ticket, boarded a plane, and traveled across the country to meet with a minor who he had been chatting with for about three months. This behavior is deeply disturbing and serves as a grim warning to parents to monitor their child’s online activity.”
