Bruce Corbin Krupa responded to an online ad April 2, in which he thought he was talking to a 13-year-old girl, but it was really an undercover detective, investigators said.
The decoy child said several times that she was 13 years old, and Krupa continued to communicate with her via email and texts and discussed having sex with her, investigators said.

"We have to remember that people who seek out children usually do work or find places to go where they have access to children," said Detective Lori Fiorino, with the Orlando Police Department.
Nancy Wait, with the Volusia County School District, said Krupa has served as a substitute teacher and substitute cafeteria worker for the schools since 2015. He has substituted less than 60 times, and his last job was onFeb. 20, Wait said.
“As soon as we were notified of his arrest, he was permanently removed from the substitute list and disqualified for future employment,” Wait said.
