Albertson Teachers’ Aide Charged With Sexting Student
A 34-year-old Levittown woman employed as a teachers’ aide at the Henry Vicardi School for students with disabilities in Albertson has been accused of sexting a student over the past five months.
Nassau County police arrested Ivone Oliviera on Thursday and charged her with endangering the welfare of a disabled person.
Oliviera “engaged in an inappropriate relationship” with the victim beginning in January, when she “displayed inappropriate physical contact with the victim such as hugging and kissing,” police said in a news release.
Third Squad detectives alleged that she had also sent the victim “text messages and photos from her phone which was of a sexual manner.”
She will be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.
The case is marks the seventh time this year a Long Island school teacher or administrator has been arrested for allegedly behaving inappropriately around students.
