A 6th NYC school worker has been arrested on sex charges within the last 3 weeks. This time, it’s a high school teacher in Manhattan. Police say he inappropriately touched a 14-year-old student.
His name is Darryl Lynch and he’s 55 years old. Police say he’s a ROTC teacher at the High School of Graphic Communication Arts in Hell’s Kitchen. He’s worked there for 15 years.
Police say he sexually assaulted the student earlier this month, by groping her over her clothes in his office, and another time, he touched the girl’s buttocks.
He faces charges of sex abuse, forcible touching and acting in a manner to injure a child. The Department of Education says Lynch has been reassigned out of the school.
Manhattan teacher’s aide Gregory Atkins, Queens teacher Wilbert Cortez and Queens teacher’s aide Brett Picou were all accused of molesting children in their schools; Bronx substitute teacher Chukwuma Duru was accused of forcibly touching a student; and Brooklyn teacher’s aide Taleek Brooks was accused of possessing child pornography and producing child pornography in a classroom.
