Polk County, FL (February 6, 2019) – 34-year-old Charles Aguon II was arrested on two counts of lewd molestation for allegedly molesting a boy at a Florida prep school. Aguon served as an ordained minister at the Kingdom Preparatory School and also was employed as the headmaster of the school, a football coach and a teacher to seventh and eighth-grade students.
Charles Aguon II went by the nickname of "Pastor Tiger" at the school. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said that Aguon used his position to groom the 15-year-old boy as far back as November of last year. Deputies started to investigate on Monday when the victim told them that Aguon had simulated a sexual act on him and touched his genitals both over and under his clothes.
Deputies listened in on a phone call between the victim and Aguon in which the victim told Aguon that he was not comfortable spending the night at the teacher's house and went on to tell the teacher that he didn't like it when Aguon tried to kiss him and touch him. Aguon responded by saying "Oh, the lovin' on you?" he then told the student that he was “only messing” with him.
Aguon was arrested yesterday at the school where he teaches. He spoke with deputies and admitted that he kissed and touched the boy but told them that he did not touch him underneath his clothing.
He has since been charged on the two counts of lewd molestation.
