    A Minneapolis middle school teacher who posted an online ad looking for sex with high schoolers called in sick Tuesday to meet up with someone he believed was a 14-year-old girl, according to criminal charges filed Thursday. Joel D. Fowler, 23, told the girl that his name was “Blake,” and that he would meet up with her at Cherokee Park in St. Paul for sex, the charges said. What Fowler didn’t know was that he was communicating with a St. Paul police sergeant posing as a girl as part of the undercover sting, Operation Broken Heart ... Fowler was arrested when he arrived at Cherokee Park. He allegedly had two condoms in a front pocket and two more in a back pocket.

    Charges: Mpls. Teacher Posted Ad For Sex With High Schooler

    According to the criminal complaint, Joel Daniel Fowler, a teacher at Olson Middle School in Minneapolis, posted an ad on Craigslist looking for soon-to-be or recent high school graduates who want “to play with a just out of college guy.” The ad continued, stating, “I was just at a HS graduation and watching the girls really made me miss high school and the fun those girls are.” A St. Paul Police officer responded to Fowler’s ad, posing as a 14-year-old girl and the two agreed to meet up, with the intention of having sexual intercourse. According to the charges, Fowler identified himself as “Blake” but a law enforcement database showed the phone number belonged to Fowler.

    Mpls. teacher charged for soliciting sex with teens

    The undercover officer responded the the ad posing as a 14-year-old girl who was with friends, asking "how yung is too yung 4 u?" The person who posted the ad, who police later found out was Fowler, responded with a direct and sexual invitation. Police continued to exchange pictures and texts with the person who posted the ad, and while the person said his name was "Blake" investigators traced the cell phone number to Joel Fowler. Eventually the suspect agreed to meet at Cherokee Park for a sexual encounter, and was arrested. Officers found condoms in his back pockets.

    When questioned by police Fowler denied knowing that the person he was corresponding with was 14-years-old and claimed they had not exchanged pictures. He told them he was a middle school teacher with a masters degree and had called in sick on the day of the planned encounter. Investigators say Fowler admitted to posting five different ads on Craigslist since 2012, but denied ever meeting anyone from an ad he posted. He also insisted that he has had no inappropriate conduct with students at the school where he taught.

    Former Minneapolis teacher was disciplined for swearing at students

    A former Minneapolis school teacher who pleaded guilty to trading messages about sex with a police investigator posing as a 14-year-old girl had a history of swearing at his students. Joel D. Fowler, 23, of St. Louis Park, was reprimanded in February for his behavior and warned that if he didn't change, he could face further discipline and possible firing. When Fowler was charged May 29 in Ramsey County District Court in the undercover sex sting, the school district said that he had no history of complaints. But personnel data the district released this week show that he did have complaints on his record, and that school officials were concerned about his behavior. He told a student to "get the [expletive] out of my room," said a Feb. 7 letter written by Evelyn Kimble, assistant principal at Olson Middle School.
