He allegedly engaged in a sexual act with the victim in the school building during school hours last spring. Specifically, he was charged then with Criminal Sexual Act in the Third Degree, a Class E felony. The investigation continued and led to the further charges.

Fraioli resigned from his teaching position in June. He was released on bail which was posted earlier. His next court appearance will be scheduled in Westchester County Court.

Special Prosecutions Division Assistant District Attorney Mary Clark-DiRusso, Deputy Chief of the Domestic Violence Bureau, is prosecuting the case.
