Former Seminole County teacher sentenced to 10 years for arranging to meet 15-year-old girl for sex

A 53-year-old man who taught for nearly twenty years at Oviedo High School will spend 10 years in federal prison for arranging to meet and have sex with an undercover officer that was posing as a 15-year-old girl.

Dennis Lee Line was sentenced on Wednesday, November 2 by United States District Judge Wendy W. Berger to spend 10 years in federal prison for attempting to coerce or entice a minor to engage in sexual activity.

A federal jury found Line guilty on August 11, 2022.

On February 9, 2022, Line, who is from Winter Springs, used a dating application to meet who he believed was a 15-year-old girl.

Through messages with the girl, who was actually an undercover law enforcement agent, Line initiated a discussion about sex and arranged to meet the girl so that he could perform oral sex and teach her about sex.

Line agreed to meet the girl in Orange County after he left his job at a local theme park. Upon arrival, Line was arrested by undercover officers who had copies of his conversation.

Line taught at Oviedo High School from 2001 to 2018 and was most recently employed at a local theme park.
