Brooklyn Assistant Principal Accused Of Making Sexually Explicit Remarks To Students
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The assistant principal at Progress High School in Brooklyn is accused of making sexually inappropriate comments to three 15-year-old female students.
William Abreu, 43, allegedly asked the three girls, who met with him to apply for summer jobs at the school, if they were sexually active.
“Abreu had each of the girls come into his office, by herself. He closed the door, started to have conversations with them and then started to ask them about their sex life and then talk to them about doing things sexually with him or with their boyfriend,” Richard Condon, the Department of Education’s Special Commissioner of Investigation, told 1010 WINS.
Abreu allegedly asked one of the girls if she would perform oral sex on him and told her that he treats his female employees like “second wives,” Condon said.
Abreu is also accused of asking another student if she ever performed oral sex on her boyfriend and allegedly suggested that she engage in anal sex.
Condon is recommending that Abreu be fired, along with school aide Arelis Candelario, 47, who allegedly lied to investigators.
Candelario is accused of approaching the three students with the job offers which ultimately led the girls to meetings with Abreu.
The investigation kicked off after one of the girls reported the alleged inappropriate comments to a guidance counselor at her church.
