New York, Oct 22 (ANI): A NYC teacher with a foot fetish allegedly had sex with an underage student at a hot-sheets motel and sweet-talked another into sending him X-rated pics.
Incredibly, 46-year-old science teacher Wayne Bartley blamed it on the girls and their "raging hormones."
Investigators said Bartley had a 14-month fling with a student at Intermediate School 229 in the Bronx, which began when she was 13.
Bartley also persuaded a different 13-year-old student at a Brooklyn school to send nude pictures - as well as foot shots - to his iPhone, the report said.The creep preyed on a third student by showering her with gifts, getting her nails done and massaging her feet, probers said.
Bartley denied having sex with any student and blamed the investigation on the raging hormones of teenage girls.
"Students always tend to have crushes on male teachers," the New York Daily News quoted Bartley as saying.
"Fifth graders, sixth graders, they're very unstable, they're very impressionable.
"Maybe you show them attention because they're doing well in class and it's taken the wrong way," he added.
He was permanently banned from teaching at city schools once the Education Department learned of the investigation.
The probe started last spring after a father of a 13-year-old, a student at IS 392, complained she had an inappropriate relationship with Bartley, her former teacher during the 2008-09 school year.
In a flurry of phone calls and texts, the pervy pedagogue flattered the girl, calling her "exotic," "pretty" and "his favorite" out of all his students, the report said.
After an interview with a principal at IS 229, investigators also discovered a sexual relationship Bartley had with a student whom he taught fifth-grade science and privately tutored in seventh grade.
The teen told authorities that from March 2008 to May 2009, Bartley bedded her twice a month at the Paradise Motor Inn in the Bronx, where a room costs 35 dollars for four hours.(ANI)
