Kings County District Attorney's Office
Kings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes yesterday announced the sentencing of Jeffrey Kaye, 50, a teacher at a test preparatory school in Sunset Park, to 35 years in prison for sexually abusing five students in 2007, 2010 and 2011.
He was convicted on charges of Course of Sexual Conduct Against a Child in the Second Degree, four counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree and Sexual Abuse in the Third Degree. He was sentenced yesterday before Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Michael Gary.
On several occasions, Kaye sexually abused four of his students in the school’s bathroom. The victims ranged in ages from 8 to 12 years old. He was also convicted of sexually abusing a 17-year-old student whom he was tutoring privately.
One of the victims told his parents about Kaye’s actions, who then alerted police. An investigation was conducted, which led to information regarding the other victims.
The case was prosecuted by Joan Erskine, counsel to the Crimes Against Children Bureau, and Assistant District Attorney Shea Scanlon Lomma. Ms. Gregory is chief of the Crimes Against Children Bureau. Rhonnie Jaus is chief of the Sex Crimes/Crimes Against Children Division.
