Plantation Middle School After-Care Worker Accused of Recruiting Boys for Sex

A 20-year-old worker in a South Florida middle school after-care program faces federal charges of offering money, gifts and trips to Disney World to recruit teenage boys for sex.

Roosevelt Miller is due in court Wednesday following his arrest last week.

The SunSentinel reports the investigation began March 8 when a 13-year-old student told someone at Plantation Middle School that Miller sent him inappropriate messages. Two other boys came forward two days later.

Authorities say Miller tricked students into writing their names and phone numbers on a list if they were interested in playing sports. The boys said Miller then sent them messages on the mobile app KIK.

Miller told one student he was "sexy" and that he wanted to "spoil" him, an arrest affidavit said. He also told boys he wanted to give them gifts in exchange for touching their genitals, the affidavit said.

"Miller offered the group gifts such as shoes, money, and his credit card in exchange for this contact," the affidavit said.

Investigators say he also offered to take the boys to Disney World.

Records don't list an attorney for Miller.
