A security guard at a Connecticut high school was arrested Monday after police say he paid a 15-year-old student to bring him her underwear and had “inappropriate physical contact with her.”
52-year-old Pasquale Mecca admitted to paying the girl several times for her underwear and has been charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and three counts of risk of injury to a minor.
The girl’s mother alerted police after finding large amounts of cash in her daughter’s room and becoming suspicious.
When the mother questioned the girl, she admitted that Mecca paid her to bring him her panties at least three times.
The exchange of underwear for cash is believed to have happened both on and off school grounds.
Police have not disclosed how much money the girl received for the transactions but a police spokesman says for a 15-year-old “It seemed like a lot of money.”
