NYC principal addresses teacher’s arrest

NEW YORK (AP) - The principal of an elite New York City high school says school officials were unaware of allegations against a teacher charged with sexually preying on seven students until his arrest.

Brooklyn Technical High School Principal Randy Asher told a group of parents Thursday the school was horrified to learn about the allegations but said "it wasn't anything we had any knowledge of."

Sean Shaynak was indicted this week on 36 charges including kidnapping, forcible touching, sexual abuse and criminal sexual act. He pleaded not guilty.

He was arrested in August after a student complained he had sent her an inappropriate photo.
The New York Times says Asher said "this might still be going on" if it weren't for the courage of that student.

Shaynak's lawyer has declined to comment.

    The principle knew of these romps. They are all Leeberals they look out for each other. I would like to be a fly on the wall when they subpoenaed the teachers phone records, and now that the principle has sleepless nights thinking what is coming down on him yes you are going to be brought in on an internal probe. Call Mr. Mulgrew you are going to need the service of Shlomo Weiss, and Levine. My advice Mr. principle don’t drink them caffeinated lattes from your court street hang outs its bad enough your going to be losing lots of sleep. Hah hah
