Ex-teacher ad­mits sex abuse at pres­ti­gious school

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - STATE NEWS -

A judge has ac­cepted a re­vised plea deal for a for­mer drama teacher at a pres­ti­gious sub­ur­ban New York City high school who has ad­mit­ted he abused three stu­dents over sev­eral years, in­clud­ing two in­stances that in­volved sex­ual con­tact.

Christo­pher Schrauf­nagel pleaded guilty Mon­day to mis­de­meanor charges of en­dan­ger­ing the wel­fare of a child and sex­ual abuse.

He ad­mit­ted that all three acts hap­pened at Ho­race Gree­ley High School in Chap­paqua from 2011 to June 2015.

A judge last month re­jected Schrauf­nagel’s first plea deal be­cause he wouldn’t have to reg­is­ter as a sex of­fender or serve jail time.

He’s now sched­uled to be sen­tenced in Fe­bru­ary to three years of pro­ba­tion and reg­is­ter as a sex of­fender.

His at­tor­ney de­clined com­ment other than to say her client is ill.
