ORLANDO, Fla. - A judge has denied bond for an employee at Oak Ridge High School in Orlando accused of having sex with a teenage student on numerous occasions.
Cameron Burke, 40, is charged with sexual battery with a child/custodial and authority figure soliciting or engaging in sexual conduct with a student.
Burke has been ordered to have no contact with the victim, the victim's family, or witnesses. He has also been instructed to have no unsupervised contact with minors (under the age of 18).
According to an arrest affidavit from the Orange County Sheriff's Office, the victim recently came forward but told detectives the abuse began in 2020 when she was 15-years-old.

The victim told deputies that one day she was assisting Burke with computers, and he kissed her in the elevator. Months later, she told detectives that she was in his office when he took her to another room and had sex with her. She said while she did not tell him no, she felt she couldn't because he was a teacher, and he was 40-years-old, the affidavit said.
The victim said they had sex in his office, classrooms, and truck.
