A 43-year-old Haldane High School social studies teacher has been arrested and charged with Attempted Disseminating Indecent Material to Minors, a Class E Felony.
According to a statement from the Westchester County District Attorney's Office, Joseph Sayers, of Hawthorne, "discussed specific sexual acts in which he would like to engage" with an undercover investigator posing as a 15-year-old female.
