(Scroll down for video) A teacher took advantage of a teenage student and had sex with her until she contracted a sexually transmitted disease (STD), according to police in Florida.

Eustis police said that they have arrested 27-year-old Alex Michael Palomino after being accused of having sex with the 17-year-old girl multiple times.

Palomino has been charged with unlawful sexual activity with a minor.

He was booked into the Lake County Jail and his bail was set at $45,000.

According to the police investigation, Palomino was a teacher at the LAKE Academy and Children’s Development Center in Eustis.

At some point, he asked for the girl’s Snapchat account.

Palomino asked the 17-year-old girl out on a date and she agreed.

Palomino and the girl went on to have a sexual relationship for about 7 months.

The two had sex at a hotel at least three times.

The girl broke up with Palomino after he began having financial problems.

The father of the girl called police after a pediatrician diagnosed the teenager with an STD.

Palomino was fired from the school.

Police said that Palomino is under investigation for possibly having sex with other students after the victim revealed that she was angry with her classmate for being romantically involved with the teacher.
