Yonkers School Teacher Arrested for Streaming Sex With Student Now Delay & New Conditions

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 8 –  A former Yonkers school teacher on July 12, 2023 was arrested then released for sexual enticement and filming of a minor.

Inner City Press was present for her arraignment before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge John P. Cronan, the only media there. Thread:

Now at arraignment of SANDY CARAZAS-PINEZ, a former high school teacher in Yonkers, for enticing a minor victim to engage in illegal sexual activity and live streaming it. 

AUSA: We agree to release on [unsecured] bond of $75,000. Can travel to Connecticut, release on her own signature. She has retained counsel.

 Judge: How do you plead?

Not guilty.

Judge (to AUSA) Tell me about the alleged conduct  AUSA: She was a teacher... Conduct was live streamed. We wiill do extractions from devices.

  Judge: We'll meet again Sept 14 at 11:30 am.

Earlier the prosecutors said they were charging SANDY CARAZAS-PINEZ with enticing a minor victim to engage in illegal sexual activity and production of child pornography.  As alleged in the Indictment, CARAZAS-PINEZ, a former high school teacher in Yonkers, New York, enticed one of her students, who was only 16 years old at the time, to engage in sexual activity with CARAZAS-PINEZ and further induced the same student to participate in live-streamed sexually explicit conduct while on video calls with CARAZAS-PINEZ. 

CARAZAS-PINEZ was arrested this morning and will be presented in Manhattan federal court later today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger.  The case was assigned to U.S. District Judge John P. Cronan.

In November 2023 Judge Cronan docketed: "the Court modified the defendant's conditions by adding the condition that Ms. Carazas-Pinez may not contact any former student outside the presence of counsel. The status conference scheduled for November 20, 2023 is adjourned to January 24, 2024 at 2:00 p.m.."

The case is US v. Carazas-Pinez, 23-cr-346 (Cronan)
