TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A Tallahassee man has been arrested after admitting to coercing a 12-year-old into sexual activity on a Leon County school bus in 2016 and sexually battering a second child last month inside a bathroom stall at a Leon County Public Library location.

Christian Bradshaw, 22, was arrested Wednesday after the victim disclosed information about the incident to Leon County investigators on November 15, 2018.

The victim said that he had sexual contact with Bradshaw on a school bus sometime in 2016. According to court documents, the victim stated that he was 11 or 12 years old at the time and was in seventh grade while Bradshaw was 20 and a high school student.

Both attended Heritage Trails Community School, a school that serves students with behavioral and learning disabilities, at the time.

The victim said Bradshaw befriended the victim and convinced him to perform sexual acts on Bradshaw while aboard the school bus on two separate occasions.

The same day, arrest documents say detectives at the Leon County Sheriff's Office found Bradshaw and brought him in for an interview. During the interview, they say Bradshaw admitted that, on two separate occasions, the victim performed sexual acts on him and said that he also performed sexual acts on the victim.

"[Bradshaw] knew that [the victim] was in middle school at the time and [Bradshaw] was in high school," documents state. "[Bradshaw] would have been approximately 20 years old at the time."

During this same interview, the Leon County Sheriff's office says Bradshaw also admitted to having sexual contact with a third victim in a separate incident.

Deputies say a 13-year-old victim reported having sexual contact with Bradshaw inside a bathroom stall at a Leon County Public Library location in April 2019.

Based on the evidence, Bradshaw was arrested and booked into the Leon County Detention Facility.

At his first appearance Friday, a judge ordered that Bradshaw wear a GPS monitor, stay away from minors, and obey a 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. curfew. He's also been ordered to not return to Heritage Trails Community School and to have no unsupervised use of the internet.
