A 42-year-old female humanities teacher is charged with raping a Brooklyn middle school student, now aged 14, after plying him with alcohol and marijuana. Claudia Tillary, 42, allegedly began a sexual relationship with the boy when he was a sixth-grader at the Stephen Decatur School, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn back in 2009—but he only recently ended it and spoke out. Cops swooped on the Crown Heights home that Tillary shares with her teenage daughter and young son yesterday evening. No sexual encounters took place on school grounds, insists a spokesman. Drugs and alcohol are commonly used by sexual predators to bribe victims and break down their inhibitions—former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky currently faces such accusations. Tillary is charged with rape, unlawful dealing of drugs and alcohol to a child, sexual misconduct, sexual abuse and acting in a manner injurious to a child. "All the kids liked her. She’s a good teacher. She was a pretty lady," says one eighth-grader who was taught by Tillary. "She was serious in class. I'm surprised that this happened."
