MIAMI (CBS4) – Miami-Dade Schools Police are looking for a man accused inappropriate contact with a minor.

Schools Police Sgt. Ivan Silva says there is an active arrest warrant for Joan Humberto Marcelino, 44, for Lewd and Lascivious Molestation on a child under 16, Lewd and Lascivious Exhibition on a child under 16, Unlawful Sexual activity with a minor, and indecent exposure.

“As the chief of police, [this is] very, very disturbing. As a parent, I’m very angry to know that somebody like this is out there targeting our youth,” said Schools Police Chief Charles Hurley.

Records also show that Marcelino is facing similar charges in Clermont, FL.

“He’s out on bond. Bond that since been revoked,” said Chief Hurley.

Marcelino is also a published author. He wrote a book about domestic violence. Police say Marcelino has a clinical degree and could possibly be working in child counseling.

“Our concern is that he could be working in some capacity, in the private sector, where he could access children,” said Chief Hurley.

Police say Marcelino is an avid weight lifter and worry he could use his gym and health spa memberships to meet minors.

Authorities say Marcelino drives a 2001 blue/green 4 door Daewoo with a Florida tag 925WNL.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Messenger at 305-995-COPS, or Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
