A former Teaneck substitute teacher that was charged with sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl has been sentenced to 5 years probation and will not have to register as a sex offender. Ronald Kraus was charged with sexual assault by sexual contact and endangering the welfare of a child back in March after an incident occurred at Lowell Elementary School.
According to the girl's parents, the 43-year-old touched the child's buttocks and vagina and had her touch his penis. Kraus told police a slightly different story. He reportedly said that during class "the child jumped on his lap and began gyrating, causing him to become aroused" and that he may have "cupped the child’s buttocks in mid-air when she jumped."
Though he won't face jail time Kraus was ordered to surrender his teaching license and submit to sex-specific counseling.
