Bronx Teacher Allegedly Rapes Student And Apologizes For Being Too Rough

winter morning in the North Bronx

A Bronx teacher allegedly raped his 10-year-old student and later sent her an apology, saying that he was too rough.

Anthony Criscuolo actually had the audacity to send the girl an email the day after raping her inside his car. “I was too rough. Sorry,” he wrote. “It’s normal. You may feel pain for a few days.”

Criscuolo was arrested for the crime on Wednesday after the girl’s parents found several sexually explicit emails sent by the teacher. He was charged with rape, predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child and is being held on $500,000 bail.

Apparently that wasn’t the first time the Bronx teacher raped the 10-year-old girl. According to a criminal complaint, the alleged sexual abuse has been going on for two months.

The 40-year-old first sexually assaulted his student in school in April and then again in May. According to authorities, he said to her, “I’m doing this because I like you.”

“He was manipulating her to keep her from talking,” the girl’s aunt said. “She was scared.”

“If these facts are proven to be correct, it’s really a totally outrageous situation,” NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

Many parents at the school Criscuolo taught at are horrified by the news.

“I think it’s very horrible because my niece is in his class,” Denesha Brown said. “It’s not right. She is a 10-year-old. She cannot defend herself against a grown man.”

The Department of Education said that Criscuolo is banned from the school and has been reassigned to a non-teaching position. He began teaching in the city in 2002 and has taught at three different schools since then.

What do you think should happen to the Bronx teacher who is accused of raping his 10-year-old student?

    Stupidity caught him. Good. What a price to pay. WE need teachers that will just do their job and that is it…..Is that so difficult to ask. Good grief.

    I'm so shocked to read this my grandma called me and told me what had transpired, I'm so shocked because I was his student back in 2003 and he didn't strike me as that type of person he was very kind and helped me through a lot because of how I was back then if it wasn't for him I wouldn't be the adult I am today. But he shall receive his punishment for his actions and will suffer for the rest of his life because of what he did.

    Why has he has been reassigned to ANYTHING? He should have been fired on the spot. And he should go to jail for a min of 20 freaking years! And yes, he needs to register as a sex offender because that is what that sicko is.

    1. Be listed as a sex offender, 2. Charged with rape and child endangerment, 3. Never to be allowed around children and lose his license to teach. 4. If he has children or grandchildren they should only be around his supervised, and when he does go to jail no special privileges such as being put in a special population because he is a child rapist let him be with other predators such as himself.. Oh and the principle and superintendent should be suspended because they reassigned him and not fired him. What is he doing emailing a 10 year old. That's just my opinion giving the Bronx a bad name man smh.

    You left off castration. If that was MY daughter, they'd be finding pieces of this gene trash for years. CNN would have to come up with its own theme song and logo to cover my rampage.

    This man should be reassigned to prison. A 40 year old man addressing a ten year old girl like she's an adult? There's something terribly wrong with this picture. Hang'm high!
