Teacher Arrested For Allegedly Paying A 16-Year-Old Boy For Oral Sex
The teacher, 37-year-old Waris Grant, was arrested at Bedford-Stuyvesant’s PS 256 around 12:30 pm yesterday, after a police investigation of his after-school activities revealed the fourth grade teacher allegedly paid a 16-year-old boy for oral sex.
It is unclear when the transaction took place or how Grant knew the victim, who remains anonymous because he is a minor.
According to police, the victim was neither a student of Grant’s, nor of the school’s, which only serves students through sixth grade.
He is, however, enrolled in New York’s public school system.
Authorities were tipped off after the victim reported the alleged abuse to his parents, who contacted the police.
Grant has been charged with promoting prostitution, a criminal sex act, and acting in a manner injurious to a child.
According to the Department of Education, whom Grant has been registered with since 2001, the teacher has since been reassigned away from students, but continues to collect his nearly $73,000 salary.
