A former New York public school teacher has been charged with criminal sexual act, a felony, for allegedly engaging in a sexual act with an underage student on school property during school hours, prosecutors said this week.
John Fraioli was working at New Rochelle High School at the time of the alleged crime, which the Westchester County district attorney's office says happening "in the school building during school hours last spring."
Fraioli resigned over the summer, the district's interim superintendent told Lohud in a statement earlier this week. But the resignation wasn't related to the sex allegations, and the district didn't know about those at the time, she said.
Attorney information for Fraioli wasn't immediately available.
