BROOKLYN, N.Y. (PIX11) -- A Brooklyn Tech High School teacher who allegedly had sexual relations with at least seven students rewarded some of them with perfect grades, authorities said in court Tuesday.

Prosecutors announced a 36-count indictment against Sean Shaynak, 44, of Flatbush, Brooklyn. Charges include kidnapping, unlawful imprisonment, criminal sexual act, forcible touching and sexual abuse with girls ages 13 to 19.

Brooklyn prosecutor Joseph Mancino said at the suspect’s arraignment Tuesday Shaynak “would routinely give [one teen] 100s in his class even though she turned in work with no answers.”

He allegedly forced himself on the same girl after she refused to engage in a sex act, the New York Post reported. Shaynak also allegedly took another girl on a car ride from Queens to Brooklyn, where the student ended up hiding from the teacher in the bushes out of fear. He “screamed and banged on the car” and threatened to tell her parents as the girl hid, Mancino said in court.

Prosecutors say Shaynak had a four-month relationship with one student. During the relationship, he brought her to an out-of-state sex club where he performed sex acts on other people and other people performed sex acts on him.

Shaynak is also accused of sending full-frontal photos to students, including two minors, and taking a 15-year-old to a nude beach where he gave her Jack Daniel’s and tequila until she passed out. At one point, he tried convincing the 15-year-old into having lesbian sex with another student.

Multiple searches were done on the teacher’s computer, where officials found bestiality porn, including sex acts between humans and a variety of animals including dogs, horses and goats.

The math and physics teacher pleaded not guilty on all charges. Shaynak was removed from the school and placed in a “rubber room” where he continues to get paid. He currently makes $52,744 a year.

Brooklyn Tech is one of nine specialized high schools in New York City.  Mayor de Blasio’s son, Dante, is currently a student there.
