Former P.E. Director Pleads Not Guilty To Sex Abuse

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Paul Mira, a former PE director at a Miami-Dade private school, entered a not guilty plea Friday to charges that he molested two students.

Mira, 29, worked at Archimedean Middle-Conservatory – Archimedean Upper Conservatory on SW 72nd Street.

He’s charged with sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl and having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old. Both allegedly happened in 2011.

The arrest warrant dealing with the 17-year-old victims states that “while the defendant was aware he was being sought by police, he maintained telephonic contact with the 17-year-old victim, and even met her in person. The defendant told the 17 year old victim that he didn’t know if he should take his life and the life of the 12 year old female student. The 17-year-old reported this apparent threat to the brother of the 12-year-old victim.”

Miami-Dade police said Mira attempted to flee after being charged in the first case and was eventually arrested in Polk County.

Mira faces a total of seven charges and had previously been given a bond of $140,000.

    I am so sick and tired of these stories of child sexual abuse!! It’s time to mandate a law that if you touch a child inappropriately, and are convicted, you will be hung or death by firing squad, no prison – that’s too easy! These monsters cannot be rehabilitated-they are psychologically unfit to live in normal society, and must be taken out, period. No leniency, no “out on good behavior” – they just go right back and do it again, only worse the next time because most will murder the victim due to fear of going back to prison. I say it’s time to build some gallows and hang these sub-human creeps!!
