Teacher Nabbed For Indecent Proposal

DECEMBER 20--A Florida math teacher offered to give a 16-year-old female student an 'A' in his class if she performed oral sex on him, police charge.

Isaac Nathan Tillis, 29, was arrested yesterday after the teenager secretly recorded a conversation with him in the bathroom of Bartow High School's teachers' lounge, according to a police report. While in the bathroom, Tillis, pictured in the mug shot at left, 'lowered his pants' to facilitate the barter arrangement.

The girl told cops that, on Tuesday, she asked Tillis how she could 'go about enhancing her grade' in his class, offering that she could do 'extra credit work.' Instead, he allegedly suggested a 'blow job.' In fact, when the educator gave the girl a hall pass Tuesday, he included a piece of paper with the message, 'Give me a blow job.' Investigators subsequently wired the girl and arrested Tillis after he tried to close the deal after school yesterday.

Charged with soliciting sex from a minor, Tillis was booked into the Polk County jail, where he remains in custody. He has been suspended from his teaching post. (2 pages)
