Pregnant sex chatroom

16 Mar

It was just past midnight last May when Marisa Cazanave poured her heart out in an e-mail and hit “send.” “You make me unbelievably happy,” began the rambling love letter.But the Brooklyn Technical HS teacher’s confession was wracked with mixed emotions because the object of her affection was her student.Cybersex can occur either within the context of existing or intimate relationships, e.g.among lovers who are geographically separated, or among individuals who have no prior knowledge of one another and meet in virtual spaces or cyberspaces and may even remain anonymous to one another.

In the last decade, tools like online portals, school e-mail and messaging systems have emerged, making “it far too easy to slide down the slippery slope from empathetic teacher to sexual predator,” said Frederick Lane, a Brooklyn attorney and ­author of the book “Cybertraps for Educators.” Lane estimates 70 percent of illicit student-teacher hookups are “accidental” and begin with an innocent exchange about homework that escalates to shared secrets, sexting and sex. Richard Rakowitz, who taught at Martin Van Buren HS in Queens, even allegedly bought a separate phone for his student lover.

In New York City, the Special Commissioner of Investigation, Richard Condon, has fielded 995 complaints about “inappropriate relationships” between Department of Education employees and students since April 2009.

SCI substantiated 145 of them, the agency revealed Friday.

The evolution in education technology is partly to blame. Many inappropriate exchanges occur late at night from bedroom to bedroom.

Many of the SCI cases involved Internet or cellphone communication. “It evokes a more emotional and intimate reaction,” Lane said.
