NYC Sex Crimes Defense Attorney :: Queens Teacher Accused of Raping 14-Year-Old Student

A 36-year-old public school teacher in Queens has been accused of engaging in a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old former student of his elementary school.

The English teacher was arrested last month and charged with two counts of first-degree rape, 10 counts of second-degree rape and seven counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

The sexual relationship allegedly began in November, and the man is accused of having sex with the girl in his Queens home.

The girl’s sister apparently found a series of text messages between the two and took the information to the police.

The man has been removed from the classroom. However, no complaints have been filed against this teacher in the past.
