Posted November 18, 2018 07:00:51 A teacher at a private school in New York City is facing multiple lawsuits after his students made up sexual assaults at school.

The New York Times reports that the teacher, a teacher’s aide who was fired in April, said he regretted teaching the students how to make rape accusations and to accuse people of rape.

In a statement, the school said the teacher’s actions are “completely unacceptable and indefensible.”

A judge in New Jersey has denied a request by the students to have the teacher fired.
