A City of Oakland Park camp counselor is out of a job and under arrest after being accused of child abuse.

Broward Sheriff's Office deputies say 26-year-old John Telucien sent inappropriate instant messages to a 9-year-old girl at his camp.

Telucien told authorities he told that little girl he loved her and was actually attracted to her.

Parents say the city of Oakland Park did not tell them about Telucien's arrest.

Telucien had been a city of Oakland Park camp counselor for several years. The city quickly suspended him and eventually dismissed him.
