Natalya Sokolson Gordon, 44 a NYC school teacher has told a school investigator blackmailed her into sexting him so she could keep her job.
The woman, who teaches teaches fifth graders at PS 329 in Coney Island, says she felt she had no choice but to give in to Lawrence Scott’s demands last year as he barraged her with hundreds of raunchy text messages and even a picture of his genitals.
Gordon has filed formal complaints against the New York City Department of Education and Scott, claiming that he groped her during a closed-door meeting and compelled her to send him naked pictures of herself in an attempt to save her job.
She told the New York Post: ‘I feel so stupid for believing he would help me. I was scared I was going to lose my job. I felt I had no choice. He had my life in his hands.’
Kids raise your hands if you smell something fishy here? If you felt you were been blackmailed wouldn’t you simply go to higher up and tell them which way is up? At least ask for a new school inspector?
Lawrence Scott, who is married, admitted that he sent Gordon raunchy messages, but denied assaulting her.
Went on to tell Scott: ‘She initiated it. I never forced anything on her. There was no quid pro quo,’
‘Let me see those t***’ Scott demanded in one text message.
‘So are u aggressive sexually?’ he asked in another.
‘Why wud you like me to be,’ Gordon replies.
‘Yes,’ Scott responds.
In one series of exchanges, Scott describes various sexual positions.
‘Some may force u to scream,’ he tells her.
The school teacher was being investigated after supervisors charged that she grabbed several students and made a crude gesture while speaking about Principal Salema Marbury. She denies the allegations which are said to have occurred last January.
When Scott first met with Gordon about the case against her, he reportedly told her: ‘“I have the power to get rid of you just like that’ and snapped his fingers.
‘Or I can make everything go away.’
Then, he started sending her sexually-explicit messages, Gordon tells.
For two and a half months, the pair exchanged text messages.
Natalya Sokolson Gordon frequently replied and admitted to sending him topless and bottomless photos.
Again kids, does this sound like the action of an individual fearing blackmail, who has her head pressed to the wall or the actions of a conniving woman trying to figure anything but to save her skin, or worse seek to extract an affair with the man just for the hell of it? And now what we are witnessing is blackmail between the pair of them since things became awry….?
Nevertheless Gordon claims she felt she had to entertain the gestures or she would lose her job.
In October, Gordon turned over 275 pages of text messages to the Special Commissioner of Investigation. Yet when Scott was confronted with the texts, he quit his 65,000-a-year job.
Gordon says detectives from the Special Commissioner of Investigation launched an investigation of her because she replied to Scott’s texts for months before reporting him. Something that ought to make us all wonder which way is up…
