A 36-year-old female Turkish teacher in New York has been charged with statutory rape after allegedly having sex with one of her male high school students, daily Hürriyet reported.
 
 
The allegations emerged after the 16-year-old student's girlfriend informed the school's authorities after she obtained records of private Facebook correspondence between the two.
 
According to the Brooklyn district prosecutor, Erin Sayar and 16-year old Kevin Eng sent each other over 3,500 text messages in 17 days and engaged in sexual intercourse at least eight times – three instances of which took place on school grounds. The couple also allegedly took drugs during their rendezvous.
 
Sayar, who has denied all accusations in court, was released on bail that was posted by her American husband. The woman now faces charges of rape, sexual abuse, criminal sexual behavior and endangering a minor.
 
If convicted, she could face up to four years in jail.
 
Eng's parents also filed a lawsuit against Sayar, demanding over 10 million dollars in damages.

OH right....I know of at least 8 different ways this could have been set up including the text messages. I mean come on this is a SCAM. and if not isn't it interesting how the boy doesn't say anything. Mind you I wonder how many 16 year old male students would? Statutory rape? Ha more like statutory scam physical evidence 0 Interesting how this sexual predator is allowed to go free on bail isn't it?

Red Tail, I never said its normal. I just question how this supposed "gf" got access and couldn't stop it at the start. Why wait for 700 texts and eight intercourse? It just doesn't add up to me, seems framed.

B12, exactly. in fact it was a mossad plot. i guess all those other teachers who have been busted for sex with their students are set up as well, or is it just because she is turkish?

Mr Somalia. I dont know how it works in Somalia, but in the US it is seen as very unethical and unprofessional that a 36 year old teacher has sex and takes drugs together with a 16 year old student. Would you like to send your teen age daughter to high school if you know that she had a sexual relationship iwith her 20 year old teacher?

I am not sure how this "girlfriend" was able to access his privacy after all this took place and not before it even began. I think it was a setup by the teen and his parents to sue the state school for damages. She (Saryan) did probably engage with the teenager but it was all framed. I feel bad for her. Now she wont have no job, freedom, husband, etc.

This looks mysteriously like a set up. 16 year old victim's girlfriend reported them? Hmmnnn... It sounds a bit suspect, not to mention the $10 mio lawsuit from HIS parents. How many teachers earn £10 mio? Please tell me as I will change my career immediately!
