Another New York teacher is resting behind bars after it was discovered that he had inappropriate contact with one of his students.
35-year-old Ian Edrich was charged with making inappropriate sexual comments to a student in his seventh grade English class.
The Henry B. Thompson Middle School educator wrote sexually explicit comments to a 13-year-old student, his “favorite student,” in a journal the two shared.
Local authorities suspect that the Long Island man was attempting to befriend the teen in an effort to create a sexual relationship between the two. Both spent an alarming amount of time together, including instances where the two shared lunch dates.
Edrich's journal was discovered by the teen's mother sometime after December 20th as she was the first person to report the affair to police.
An arraignment date has yet to be scheduled.
