(NY DAILY NEWS) – A booze-loving Bronx high school teacher accused of performing oral sex on a 14-year-old student denied the charges Saturday.
Dori Myers, 29, was released without bail after pleading not guilty to a single count each of criminal sexual act and endangering the welfare of a child.
Myers, a teacher at the New School for Leadership and the Arts in Kingsbridge, was hit with a 30-day order of protection requiring her to steer clear of the victim.
Manhattan prosecutors say Myers — who posted a photo of herself on social media wearing a white tank top with the phrase “Whisky makes me frisky” — abused the student on Nov. 1.
Investigators learned about the abuse after the teen victim told a classmate, who notified the principal, cops said.
Sources said Myers, who started teaching at the school in 2014, lives in Rockland County with her husband who works in law enforcement.
Defense lawyer Andrew Stoll described her as a model educator who poured her heart and soul into the school. Myers had no previous disciplinary history at the school or prior arrests.
