Both men were arrested and pleaded not guilty at their arraignments Wednesday.

An attorney for Abreu told the Daily News his client denies the charges. Martinez’s lawyer said his client is innocent.

The indictments follow a report on the two educators by the Department of Education’s Special Commissioner of Investigation.
