TEACHER ACCUSED OF RAPING AN EIGHTH GRADER
A 15 year old high school student in Brooklyn today reported to her guidance counselor that she had been sexually abused by her social studies teacher two years ago when she was an eighth grader at JHS 117 in Bedford Stuyvesant. The teacher, Nathaniel Harvey, was arrested and charged with rape and sodomy, both in the second degree. The teacher had confessed to an investigator who was posing as the girl's uncle. Mr. Harvey, who lives at 74 Hancock Street in Brooklyn, was fired from his job. He had been working as an uncertified permanent substitute, and had no criminal history.
