A Miami man is being held on no bond after he allegedly lured a 14-year-old child to Florida to have sex for money, officials said.

Samuel Woodside, 45, is being charged with human trafficking, traveling to meet a minor for unlawful sex, luring and enticing a minor to commit an unlawful act, interference with custody and sending harmful materials to a minor, a release by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said.

Woodside was the head custodian at Liberty City Elementary School, according to the Miami-Dade County Public Schools website. He resigned Sunday afternoon, officials confirmed with NBC 6.

According to the report, Woodside had allegedly been communicating with what he believed was a 14-year-old girl in Louisiana through the Internet and by cell phone for the past two months.

The FDLE said Woodside sent sexually explicit photos and invited her to come to Miami to have sex with himself and others as well. The report alleges Woodside told the girl she would make money for performing sexual acts with others.
