Former Westchester teacher arraigned on sex charges

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — A former Westchester County high school drama teacher has been arraigned on sex charges involving students at his school.

The Westchester district attorney’s office says 41-year-old Christopher Schraufnagel surrendered to authorities Wednesday.

Schraufnagel taught at Horace Greeley High School in Chappaqua until last month.

Prosecutors say he engaged in oral sex with a 15-year-old student inside the school on several occasions in 2011.

They say that in 2014 Schraufnagel asked another 15-year-old student to kiss every student in a class while Schraufnagel took pictures. They say Schraufnagel made a slide show to humiliate the students.

Schraufnagel, of Manhattan, was arraigned Wednesday on charges of criminal sex act, endangering the welfare of a minor and sex abuse.

His attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
