Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino Jr. said Tuesday that John Fraioli, 35, of White Plains, pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal sexual act and third-degree rape, felonies.
Under the term of his plea, Fraioli will be sentenced to 10 years’ sex offender probation with shock probation, which means he will spend six months in the county jail followed by 9.5 years’ sex offender probation.
He must also surrender his New York State teaching license and register as a sex offender.
Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 21.
Prosecutors said, in November, Fraioli was charged with sexually abusing a child while employed as a teacher at New Rochelle High School.
He was initially arrested by New Rochelle police after he engaged in a sex act with the child in the school building in May 2019.
Later, he continued to abuse the child in his White Plains home.
White Plains police made the arrest in November.
Fraoli resigned from his teaching position prior to his arrest.
According to the district attorney’s office, sex offender probation involves a term of 10 years of supervision by the department of probation sex offense unit, with a strict set of guidelines that include — among other things — mandatory participation in treatment; restrictions on daily living, travel, use of computers, employment and living conditions; regular submission to polygraph tests to monitor compliance and historical offending behavior and regular supervision by the court to ensure compliance. It is revocable at any indication of non-compliance.
