The teacher gets out of prison after the confession

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Florida. – Paul Urquiza was released from jail in Miami-Dade County on Wednesday night. A man used a jacket to cover the 32-year-old teacher’s head as reporters followed him with questions about his relationship with a 16-year-old girl.

Urquiza has been a teacher at Miami-Dade County Public Schools since 2017. Most recently, he taught math to students at Miami Beach Senior High School. The girl wasn’t his student.

“Send nudes on behalf of King Paul,” he wrote to the girl, according to the arrest report.

Urquiza connected with the girl from England on Reddit and about a week later he told her he loved her, police said. The girl said Urquiza helped her with her homework and read her Harry Potter, police said. She knew he would ignore her if she didn’t send the nude photos, police said.

“We see a lot of 13-16 year olds on Reddit who are horny,” Urquiza wrote to her in a message, according to the arrest form.


He offered to fly the girl to Miami or Spain so they could meet, police said. The girl accidentally sent her mother a sexually explicit photo on July 23, 2021, police said. She reported him to the police in Hampshire, England.

Interpol referred the case to the Miami-Dade Police Department last year. Detectives had a search warrant when they arrived at his home near North Beach just after 5:30 a.m. Wednesday. They interrogated him at the US Secret Service field office in Miami.

Urquiza confessed, police said.

“I probably should have stopped,” Urquiza said, according to police.

Correctional officers booked him into Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. The school district announced that his termination process began shortly thereafter and he was no longer allowed to work for the district.

Urquiza faces charges of four felonies: possession by a child of images of sexual performances, certain uses of computer services prohibited to a child, electronic transmission harmful to a minor, and unlawful use of a communication device.


Interim Miami-Dade Police Director George Perez released a statement on the case.

“Society has no place for child pornography and we will continue to educate our youth about the dangers that surround them.”
