    A Leto High School teacher was arrested on Tuesday night following an investigation into a possible sexual relationship he had with a former student.

    Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Special Victims Section detectives responded to Leto High School to investigate the sexual offense, after a former student, now 19 years old, disclosed to school officials and a School Resource Deputy that she and a teacher, Eric Milis, had a sexual relationship when she was a 17-year-old junior. Milis was 28 years old at the time of the incident.

    During a conversation overheard by detectives, Milis made statements admitting to the victim that he had a sexual relationship with her when she was a minor. Detectives responded to Milis' residence, and he was placed in custody, charged with Unlawful Sexual Activity with Certain Minors.

    He was booked into Falkenburg Road Jail.  There are no other victims believed to be involved in this incident. The Hillsborough County School District is aware of the incident.
