- Lewd and Lascivious Conduct
- Transmission of harmful materials to a minor
- Use of electronic device to seduce, solicit, lure a child (X15) (Cellphone)
Between August 30, 2015, and September 16, 2015, the defendant, a substitute teacher for the Hillsborough County School District, used his personal cell phone to communicate with the fourteen year old victim. During these conversations, the defendant and victim participated in numerous explicit sexual conversations. The defendant and victim attempted on numerous occasions to arrange to meet and engage in sexual intercourse but never did.
On September 8, 2015, while the defendant was working as a substitute teacher at Riverview High School, where the victim was a student, the defendant and victim met in a classroom, hugged one another and kissed on the lips. During a post Miranda interview with the defendant, he admitted to having sexual conversations with the victim. A search of the victim's cell phone revealed nude photographs sent from the defendant's cell phone of himself (the defendant) with his penis exposed, to the victim. A search warrant was later obtained for the defendant's cell phone, which confirmed the nude photographs of himself were sent from his cell phone to the victim.
We will continue to working closely with the Hillsborough County School District as this investigation continues.
Samuel Bullock Jr was booked into the Hillsborough County Orient Road Jail.
