Daniel Santiago Accused Of Sexual Abuse In Brooklyn

According to prosecutors, Santiago first abused the young student in February. He is accused of touching her in a sexual manner and sending her inappropriate text messages and pictures. The first incident occurred on board a school bus, police say, when Santiago allegedly touched the girl's chest, then sat beside her and slipped his hand into her pants.

The abuse continued after the class returned to school from their field trip. In a court hearing for Santiago's arraignment, prosecutors described at least two other occasions on which the teacher molested his young victim. He allegedly groped and tried to kiss the girl inside a classroom of the Brooklyn Science and Engineering Academy.

These are serious and damning allegations. Santiago has not yet been linked to other victims, but police believe that additional children may have yet to step forward. Santiago was exposed when the cousin of the victim discovered inappropriate text messages on her cousin's cell phone. Other parents from the school have been instructed to remain vigilant.

According to Education Department spokesman Will Mantell, Santiago has been reassigned to work away from children in wake of the horrific allegations against him. "We'll seek to remove him from payroll as quickly as possible while the investigation is pending," Mantell added, according to the New York Daily News.
