Former teacher charged again with soliciting sex

FRANKLIN, Indiana –
Mihirbhai Patel, 27, a former substitute teacher in Franklin County was arrested for attempting to solicit sex from juveniles on social media.
Patel was arrested back in 2015 also for allegedly paying a teen for sex while working as a substitute teacher at Franklin Community High School. During that case, Patel arranged to meet the teen at a motel for sex in exchange for $150.
Patel is currently facing a felony charge of promoting prostitution.
In the new incident, three students got the offer through Instagram. Direct messages said a man "looking for fun" was paying cash for sex acts, promising "every time we meet, you make good money," according to the probable cause affidavit reported in the media.
The boys contacted the police.
Police then set up a sting in the parking lot of a Franklin movie theater. Patel arrived in a van and was arrested.
He posted bail and is out.
