(Scroll down for video) A perverted teacher was arrested, charged and convicted of raping a 10-year-old girl.
The former teacher of New York, is facing 14 years in prison after he admitted to raping one of his fifth grade student.
Prosecutors said that 41-year-old Anthony Criscuolo, was a teacher in a public school in the Bronx, when he fooled the victim’s family into allowing him to be with the girl alone in his car.
Criscuolo told the girl’s family that she won an award and that he will be taking her to the awards ceremony at school.
Instead of going to the ceremony, he attacked the girl in a parking lot and raped her.
The next day, Criscuolo sent a text message to the victim, apologizing for being too rough and asked how it felt for her.
Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson, said that Criscuolo had accepted the plea bargain in order to “not further traumatize his young victim.”
The child’s family however, did want to confront the rapist for what he did to their beloved daughter and granddaughter.
The terms of the plea agreement means that Criscuolo loses his teaching license and he has to register as a sex offender.
He could be sentenced to 14 years in prison when he is sentenced next month.
