NYC Teacher Caught With Prostitute is Now Suing City Over Fine Department of Ed Issued

Teacher paid $89,000 a year was removed from the classroom and fined $7,500 after receiving a disorderly conduct citation for admitting to paying a woman $20 to have sex in his car


A public school teacher busted when he was caught with a $20 hooker is sparking outrage because he still has his job — and has the gall to fight a city-imposed fine.

This is the second time Edgar Ortiz, 65, kept a sex-related arrest from the city Department of Education, court records show. In 1996, the elementary teacher was hit with charges of sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a minor, which Ortiz claims were later dropped.
