A former Brooklyn educator has admitted to sexually abusing a 14-year-old student on seven separate occasions while on school grounds.
Andre Braddy, a once-beloved teacher at the Lenox Academy middle school in Canarsie, pleaded guilty Wednesday to 14 felonies for the sickening conduct, including criminal sex act in the second-degree and promoting a sexual performance of a child.
The 35-year-old admitted to each act before Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Jill Konvisor, who offered him four years behind bars in exchange for the plea — over the objection of prosecutors, who wanted him to serve at least five.
“This is a case which involves a 14-year-old child being sexually assaulted on seven different occasions in a school building during school hours,” Assistant DA Bridget Brodzinski said as she opposed the deal. “This defendant was in a position of trust with a student and had a sexual relationship with a minor.”
Yet Konvisor said this was the ex-teacher’s first contact with the criminal justice system, adding her offer was not “inappropriate.” He’d faced up to seven years in prison if convicted at trial.
“Mr. Braddy, who has admitted his guilt, wants to move forward with his life,” the judge said.
As part of the plea, Braddy will also be subject to five years of post-release supervision.
Braddy abused the student, whose name is being withheld by The Post, myriad times between March 19 and April 20, 2018. The illicit contact occurred in classrooms and the school bathroom, according to court records.
The ex-teacher was arrested after the boy told his mother, who found sexually explicit messages between the two on her son’s phone.
