BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Sex Offender Registration and Tracking Unit 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.
Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey released the following statement in regard to the arrest:
Nothing Disgusts me more than someone who is entrusted to take care of our children who then violates that trust and targets them for sex!
As if that’s not bad enough, Liscum, was a teacher at Satellite High School and had been communicating through an electronic device with an actual student at the school.
Thankfully, 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 and requested assistance with the investigation from our 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 the Use of a Computer to Lure the Child.
Liscum was transported to the Brevard County Jail which is exactly where he belongs, unfortunately, though, his bond is only $70,000, which is only about one zillion dollars less than it should be!
Our investigation is still ongoing in an effort to identify any other potential victims, as Liscum has been employed with the Brevard County School Board for the last 30 years.
It is disgusting that monsters like this are out there where they can prey upon our children, but thankfully the student, her friend, and our teacher, in this case, all did exactly what should be done to bring this individual to justice.
A huge thank you to the teacher for being such a trusted person to the students, the members of the Satellite Beach Police Department for their efforts in the investigation, and of course Agent Stake, for all they did to get this individual behind bars!
Anyone who may have additional information about Timothy Liscum is asked to please call Agent Aja Stake at (321) 633-8410 or CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477).
