31-year-old Michael Dasinger was arrested at his home on Pullen Road, for walking on Lincoln High's campus.

Deputies say he made contact with a 14-year-old girl he lured through sexual text messages.

"Every person that is a visitor to our schools must go through the rapture system, which means they must present identification, the identification is then ran through the system and checked nationally" says Leon County School's Spokesperson Chris Petley.

Petley says Dasinger did not check in with the front office. He says the schools in Leon County closely monitor any suspicious activity on campus.

31-year-old Michael Dasinger, is a registered sexual predator and on
Tuesday, September 16th. Police reports show he attempted to go down the same track again.

"It makes me feel a little uncomfortable, but I'm glad administration acted quickly and swiftly," says Donald Sheppard.

Sheppard has a 15-year-old daughter who attends Lincoln High School, and he says knowing that a sexual predator made way to the school's campus makes him feel uneasy.

Deputies say Dasinger contacted the 14-year-old Lincoln High School girl by sending her sexually explicit text messages.

After Deputies got word that Dasinger did in fact send the messages, they later discovered he also made contact with the girl during school hours and on Friday he was arrested at his home on Pullen Road.

"It's wrong I mean it's disgusting I wouldn't know why someone that age would want to come to the school like this," says former student Steven Woodell.

A press release from the Sheriff's Office states that Dasinger has been arrested before and charged with Lewd and Lascivious Act on a Child Under 12.
