(NEW YORK) -- A Brooklyn high school teacher indicted last month for allegedly sending an explicit photo to a student faces new charges of kidnapping and criminal sexual act after investigators discovered new evidence on his computer linking him to six other teenage girls.
Officials found that Sean Shaynak, a math and science teacher at Brooklyn Technical High School, allegedly took a 15-year-old student to a nude beach in New Jersey without her parents' consent. In addition, he allegedly performed a sex act on an 18-year-old student without her consent and sent photos of his genitalia to four students, including two minors.
Shaynak also is accused of engaging in consensual sex acts with two students, ages 18 and 19, inappropriately touching and kissing students, and giving alcohol and cigarettes to minors. Officials also allege Shaynak, 44, requested for two minor girls to have sex with each other.
Law enforcement seized three computers and two phones from the defendant and found thousands of text messages, along with hundreds of photographs and videos. The incidents allegedly occurred between 2011 and 2014, the Kings County District Attorney's Office announced Tuesday.
“It is shocking that a public high school teacher allegedly sexually preyed on vulnerable students," said District Attorney Kenneth Thompson. "We will now seek to vindicate the rights of those students.”
