A former drama teacher at a prestigious suburban New York City high school has admitted he abused three students over several years, reports the New York Post.
During those years, there were two instances that involved sexual contact.
Christopher Shraufnagel pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor charges of endangering the welfare of a child and sexual abuse.
He admitted that all three acts occurred at Horace Greeley High School in Chappaqua from 2011 to June of last year.
A judge last month rejected Schraufnagel’s original plea deal because he wouldn’t have to register as a sex offener or serve jail time.
He is scheduled to be sentenced in February to three years of probation and register as a sex offender.
I hope his guilty plea serves as validation for the victims in this case. I applaud them for coming forward and exposing Shraunagel.
