Earlier today Agents from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Sex Offender Registration and Tracking Unit (SORT) arrested 64-year-old, Timothy Liscum of Melbourne, after he traveled to a location in Brevard County expecting to meet a minor child for the purpose of having sexual relations.
Liscum, was a teacher at Satellite High School and had been communicating through an electronic device with an actual student at the school.
The student became concerned about the content of the conversations and told another student, as well as a trusted teacher, who immediately reported the information to school administrators. The administrators contacted the Satellite Beach Police Department who requested assistance with the investigation from BCSO Sex Offender Registration and Tracking Unit.
As a result of the request for assistance, Agent Aja Stake took over the online identity of the child and during subsequent conversations, Liscum, thinking that he was still talking to the child, solicited the student to meet for the purpose of having sexual relations. Much to his surprise, Liscum was arrested when he arrived at the pre-determined location and was taken into custody for Use of a Computer to Solicit a Child and Travel to Meet After Use of a Computer to Lure a Child. Liscum was transported to the Brevard County Jail.
