Former Indiana teacher accused of paying student for sex

FRANKLIN,Ind. (WISH) – A former substitute teacher is being accused of paying a male student for sex.

Mihirbhai Patel, who was a substitute teacher at Franklin Community High School, has been arrested.

According to documents, Patel and the teen initially met online.

After making contact on a website, the two met up on two separate occasions.  The first was at a Whiteland area motel while the second meeting took place at the home of of relative of the student. Money was exchanged in both instances in the amount of $150 and $200.

Police began investigating back in September after they received a call from school officials stating that had been told a student had been solicited by a substitute teacher.

Patel no longer works for the school as the school ended his affiliation with them the same day they made a call to police.

Because the student is between 16 and 18, Patel has been charged with patronizing a prostitute.

He has since been released from the Johnson County Jail on $250 bond.
