'Jeopardy!' champion, ex-con arrested, put on leave from teaching job at elite NYC school over 'inappropriate sexualized images'

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://www.theblaze.com/media-library/image.jpg?id=52459949&width=600&height=600&coordinates=344,0,0,0 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//www.theblaze.com/media-library/image.jpg%3Fid%3D52459949%26width%3D600%26height%3D600%26coordinates%3D344%2C0%2C0%2C0%22%7D" expand=1]

Winston Nguyen is an ex-convict who swindled $300,000 from an elderly couple and a former "Jeopardy!" champion. However, the current teacher at an elite New York City private school has most recently made headlines for being arrested for the alleged "dissemination of intimate images via social media," according to officials.

Nguyen is currently a math teacher at Saint Ann’s School in Brooklyn Heights. According to the school's website, preschool tuition starts at $52,900 and goes up to $60,525 for high school students.

The elite NYC school has celebrity alumni, including actress Lena Dunham, artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Maya Hawk – the daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman.

Saint Ann hired Nguyen as a middle- and high-school math teacher in 2020 – just one year after he was released from the prison on Rikers Island.

While at Rikers Island, Nguyen reportedly called into a radio show to speak to then-Mayor Bill de Blasio to complain about the prison's conditions.

Nguyen had been convicted of stealing $300,000 from a 96-year-old blind man and his 92-year-old wife, according to the New York Post. Nguyen had been a home health aide to the elderly couple while stealing the money to allegedly pay for pricey ballet tickets and trips to Florida.

Regarding Nguyen's criminal history, a Saint Ann's spokesperson told the Daily Beast, "A nonviolent criminal record may not preclude employment. The school gives a careful and discerning assessment of a job candidate’s potential fit with the school."

In response to the current accusations against Nguyen, the spokesperson stated: "We are fully cooperating with law enforcement in their efforts, and right now we’re focused on helping our students process this news."

The spokesperson confirmed that Nguyen is a "suspect in an ongoing investigation related to the dissemination of intimate images via social media."

The spokesperson added, "Upon his arrest on Thursday, he was immediately placed on leave by the school and he remains on leave."

Saint Ann’s Head of School Kenyatte Reid reportedly notified parents that the teacher was arrested, and it was linked to "inappropriate sexualized images."

"I was informed this evening by the assistant district attorney that his arrest is in relation to an investigation that dates back to January 2024," Reid wrote in an email to parents.

Nguyen has yet to be charged with any crimes and was released on Saturday. However, his defense attorney is awaiting information from prosecutors regarding potential charges.

Lawyer Frank Rothman told the New York Post, "We are awaiting a decision from the Brooklyn DA's office regarding charges against Mr. Nguyen. We are expecting some movement in the near future."

Rothman informed the Daily Beast, "I don’t think this is something that’s just going to be a non-issue. There’s going to be an issue. The question is, how big and when?"

Nguyen garnered some fame in 2014 when he became a "Jeopardy!" champion.

Ohio mother sentenced to prison for death of 4-year-old daughter who was fed Mountain Dew in baby bottle, causing her teeth to rot

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://www.theblaze.com/media-library/image.jpg?id=52332292&width=1200&height=800&coordinates=0,0,0,1 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//www.theblaze.com/media-library/image.jpg%3Fid%3D52332292%26width%3D1200%26height%3D800%26coordinates%3D0%2C0%2C0%2C1%22%7D" expand=1]

An Ohio mother has been sentenced to prison after her 4-year-old diabetic daughter died from being mainly fed a diet of baby bottles filled with Mountain Dew.

Tamara Banks, 41, was sentenced on Friday to at least nine years in prison for the young girl's death and up to 13 and a half years. Banks, of Clermont County, had pleaded guilty in March to involuntary manslaughter for the death of her daughter – Karmity Hoeb.

Karmity's father, 53-year-old Christopher Hoeb, also pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter. He is set to be sentenced in June.

Karmity was found unresponsive on Jan. 21, 2022. The couple called 911 and the girl was rushed to the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

The 4-year-old girl was declared to be brain dead and died four days later after being taken off life support.

Karmity died in 2022 of a diabetes-related brain injury.

The Clermont County coroner determined the girl's cause of death was diabetic ketoacidosis. Prosecutors said the girl's condition "was left undiagnosed and untreated over a long period of time."

Dr. Chris Peltier – President of the Ohio Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics – told WCPO-TV, "Diabetic ketoacidosis, or DKA, is an extreme complication of untreated diabetes."

Prosecutors claimed Banks and Hoeb mostly fed their daughter a baby bottle that was filled with baby formula and Mountain Dew soda. Prosecutors noted that the 4-year-old girl should have been weaned off bottles long before her death.

A 20-ounce bottle of Mountain Dew reportedly contains 77 grams of sugar.

WXIX-TV previously reported the girl's teeth had rotted out and she had almost none left.

Karmity suffered from a "serious medical issue" days before her death, but her parents failed to call for help or take her to the hospital, according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors said Karmity suffered neglect, child abuse, denied proper nutrition, lacked medical care, and there was no evidence that she had been taken to a dentist in her short life.

Clermont County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Clay Tharp told the Cincinnati Enquirer, "This is one of the most tragic cases I have ever encountered."

Tharp also pointed out, "This child did not have to die."

Our guardian angel now

Karmity – nicknamed "Boogie" – "loved to be silly" and "loved looking at herself in the mirror because she knew how beautiful and special she was."

"Each day she woke up full of joy and love," the girl's obituary read. "Every day she was playing with her Mickey buddies and racing her cars. She touched everyone that ever laid eyes on her or spent any time with her. She will always be remembered as our daughter, our guardian angel now."

'Was I molested. I think so': Snopes' update on Ashley Biden diary fact-check spells trouble for Joe Biden

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://www.theblaze.com/media-library/was-i-molested-i-think-so-snopes-update-on-ashley-biden-diary-fact-check-spells-trouble-for-joe-biden.jpg?id=52237125&width=1200&height=800&coordinates=0,0,0,1 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//www.theblaze.com/media-library/was-i-molested-i-think-so-snopes-update-on-ashley-biden-diary-fact-check-spells-trouble-for-joe-biden.jpg%3Fid%3D52237125%26width%3D1200%26height%3D800%26coordinates%3D0%2C0%2C0%2C1%22%7D" expand=1]

Aimee Harris moved into the former residence of Ashley Biden in Delray Beach, Florida, in 2020. Just as Hunter Biden abandoned a laptop containing damning information at a Delaware computer repair shop, Ashley Biden had left behind a diary containing troubling allegations that implicated then-presidential candidate Joe Biden in possible abuse.

After finding the diary, Harris worked in concert with Robert Kurlander to sell the document, ultimately, to Project Veritas. Kurlander and Harris pleaded guilty years later to conspiracy to transport supposedly stolen property across state lines.

Project Veritas refrained from publishing it, both out of concern for doing more harm to Ashley Biden than her father may already have and the organization's inability to "corroborate the allegation further." The National File, however, published a digital copy it allegedly received from a Project Veritas employee in October 2020.

Just as social media dutifully hid the Hunter Biden laptop story from the public ahead of the 2020 election, Politifact indicated that damning posts about the Democrat in the diary were flagged as misinformation.

Once again, the so-called misinformation of yesteryear has matured into the cold hard facts of today.

Proven

Snopes has updated its fact-check page on the diary, confirming both that the diary belonged to Ashley Biden and that the president's daughter accused him of inappropriate behavior.

The page previously indicated that the claim that "a diary authored by U.S. President Joe Biden's daughter, Ashley, describes inappropriate actions toward her taken by the president when she was a child" was "unproven."

Up until this month, the Snopes entry indicated the claim was unproven because "the authenticity of this document or the images published by National File have not been confirmed."

The fact-check outfit was compelled to change its tune after Ashley Biden, 42, once again confirmed the diary was hers in an April 8 letter to the judge overseeing Harris' case in New York.

"I am deeply saddened that I even have to write this letter because my personal private journal was stolen and sold for profit," wrote Ashley Biden.

While admitting the document was hers, Ashley Biden attempted to cast doubt on the veracity of her various entries, suggesting they were "stream-of-consciousness thoughts."

'Was I molested. I think so.'

"Repeatedly, I hear others grossly misinterpret my once-private writings and lob false accusations that defame my character and those of the people I love," added Ashley Biden.

'Showers w/ my dad'

In one of the more troubling entries in the diary, penned in January 2019, Ashley Biden explores the causes of her "sexual trauma" and apparent sex addiction.

"I know it's not the healthiest way to deal with things but @ least it's better than drugs," wrote the president's daughter.

Ashley Biden then indicated that her unchecked sex drive may have been the result of childhood trauma.

"Hyper-sexualized @ a young age. What is this due to? Was I molested. I think so — I can't remember specifics but I do remember trauma — I remember not liking the Woolzacks house, I remember somewhat being sexualized with Caroline [Biden, her cousin]; I remember having sex with Friends @ a young age; showers w/ my dad (probably not appropriate), Being turned on when I wasn't suppose to be."

Ashley Biden wrote a letter to the judge confirming the diary is real and belongs to her.\n\nHere\u2019s a reminder of what the diary said:\n\nThe President of the United States is a p*d0phiIe.
— (@)

Biden boosters like Ed Krassenstein appear keen to downplay the contents of the diary. Others think Snopes' about-face and the corresponding confirmation of the diary's authenticity could change the outcome of the 2024 election.

Legal scholar Robert P. George, director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University, noted that the Snopes update "strikes me as what Joe Biden might describe as a 'big [expletive] deal.' Imagine if it were Ivanka Trump making the accusation against her father. Does this give those Democrats who've been looking for an excuse to push Biden aside in favor of a more electable presidential candidate the justification they've been looking for?"

Federal judge warns married teacher of 3 previously charged with sexual abuse of mentally ill student is 'danger to the community'​

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://www.theblaze.com/media-library/image.png?id=52174913&width=1200&height=800&coordinates=15,0,7,0 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//www.theblaze.com/media-library/image.png%3Fid%3D52174913%26width%3D1200%26height%3D800%26coordinates%3D15%2C0%2C7%2C0%22%7D" expand=1]

A former teacher allegedly broke the conditions of her home confinement regarding charges of sexually assaulting an underage mentally ill student. A federal judge warned that the married mother of three poses a "danger to the community."

As Blaze News previously reported, Sandy Carazas-Pinez was accused last year of engaging in multiple sexual acts in her car with a 16-year-old boy. The New York City public teacher was fired from her job. Carazas-Pinez, 34, had been a biology teacher at the Biondi School in Yonkers, New York.

Biondi is run by the nonprofit organization Rising Ground and assists students with special needs.

"The Biondi Middle and High School provides educational and therapeutic support to both residential and day students who have behavioral and emotional challenges, learning disabilities, or intellectual/developmental disabilities," the Rising Ground website states.

Carazas-Pinez was arrested in July after allegedly sending nude images and sexually explicit text messages to a 16-year-old student.

"I do miss your touch and kisses not going to lie. I also miss seeing you masturbate, I sound like a pervert," she purportedly wrote to the boy.

The mother of the alleged victim discovered the illicit content and reported the teacher to local authorities.

The mother said, "It’s the rape of a child with a mental illness. As a society, we have to prioritize the safety of children who are mentally ill and boys who are sexually assaulted."

The minor reportedly suffers from schizophrenia and a mood disorder.

Carazas-Pinez allegedly committed multiple violations after being arrested.

This week, Carazas-Pinez allegedly violated her bail conditions. She was instructed not to have any unsupervised contact with any child under the age of 18.

The married mother of three reportedly emailed another former student a day after he turned 18 to wish him a happy birthday.

The New York Post reported that Brooklyn federal judge John Cronan revoked the bail of Carazas-Pinez after she allegedly breached her bail conditions.

Cronan noted that the infraction was technically not a violation, but "it seems to fly in the face of the spirit of the conditions."

Cronan said Carazas-Pinez poses “a real danger to the community.”

Even her own lawyer called the ex-teacher's behavior "troubling."

Prosecutors said the former teacher’s conduct shows a "pattern of grooming" a student for sex.

The mother of the alleged victim told The Post, "She’s a very disturbed individual, and I’m glad she no longer has access to children — especially mine."

New Jersey female teacher, 38, accused of sexually abusing 13-year-old girl, school received bomb threats

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://www.theblaze.com/media-library/image.png?id=52059795&width=1245&height=700&coordinates=0,59,0,60 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//www.theblaze.com/media-library/image.png%3Fid%3D52059795%26width%3D1245%26height%3D700%26coordinates%3D0%2C59%2C0%2C60%22%7D" expand=1]

A New Jersey middle school teacher has been accused of sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl. After the allegations came to light, bomb threats were made against the female teacher and the school.

Marlboro Memorial Middle School teacher Jenna Sciabica, 38, was charged with one count of harassment-offensive touching. The charge carries a penalty of up to 30 days in jail.

The teacher was hit with the charge after the Marlboro Police Department conducted a month-long investigation, which included a review of surveillance camera footage, interviews, and written statements, according to NewJersey.com. The Marlboro Police Department consulted the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office before charging the teacher.

Sciabica's attorney, Mitchell Ansell, called the allegations "outrageous and defamatory."

"Jenna intends to plead not guilty and vigorously defend herself in court," Ansell said in a statement. "We are confident that once a judge hears all the facts in this case, Jenna will be completely exonerated and her good name, character, and reputation be restored."

Ansell added, "There was absolutely nothing illegal, improper or immoral about the interaction between Jenna and this student on March 13, 2024. Quite frankly, it’s outrageous and defamatory for Jenna to have been accused of committing a crime.”

Ansell noted that Sciabica "has been dedicated to the education of students for over 15 years" and "has never had any prior allegations and/or accusations filed against her and has an exemplary record."

Sciabica has reportedly known the alleged victim for three years.

"Jenna has a very close relationship with this student’s family, even going as far as having been invited into their home on numerous occasions," Ansell stated.

The statement read, "Sadly, as a result of these false and baseless accusations, Jenna and her family have been the victim of bomb and death threats."

School officials allegedly informed the police that the teacher inappropriately touched the student over the clothes. Following the accusations, Sciabica was immediately placed on leave by the school district.

"As soon as we became aware of the situation, action was taken, and the staff member in question was immediately removed from her position,” Superintendent Michael Ballone said in a letter to parents sent on Wednesday.

However, the mother of the alleged victim is furious about the response to the accusations.

On Tuesday night, the mother of the purported victim blasted the school board over the alleged teacher sex scandal and levied sexual assault accusations against Sciabica.

The mother said the female teacher "groped" her 13-year-old daughter in a hallway. She called Sciabica a "predator" who "sexually abused" her daughter.

During the Marlboro Board of Education meeting, the mother blamed the school for "failing to prevent the atrocity that happened down that hallway" to her daughter.

The mother said in a statement, "While we are happy that action is finally being taken, we are disappointed at the charge. It seems like they rushed to make it seem like they’re doing something. We are hopeful they will do the right thing for our family and community."

On Thursday, someone made a bomb threat against the school. The school was closed and police launched a search but did not find any explosives.

There was another bomb threat at the school on Friday. Authorities did not find a bomb.

Police said there was a good possibility of a connection between the sexual assault accusations and the bomb threats.

Democrat mayor of Atlantic City, superintendent wife accused of abusing teen daughter: 'Smacking the weave out of her head'

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://www.theblaze.com/media-library/democrat-mayor-of-atlantic-city-superintendent-wife-accused-of-abusing-teen-daughter-smacking-the-weave-out-of-her-head.jpg?id=52014801&width=1200&height=800&coordinates=0,0,94,0 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//www.theblaze.com/media-library/democrat-mayor-of-atlantic-city-superintendent-wife-accused-of-abusing-teen-daughter-smacking-the-weave-out-of-her-head.jpg%3Fid%3D52014801%26width%3D1200%26height%3D800%26coordinates%3D0%2C0%2C94%2C0%22%7D" expand=1]

The Democrat mayor of Atlantic City, New Jersey, and his wife, the superintendent of Atlantic City Public Schools, have been accused of "physically and emotionally" abusing their teenage daughter several months ago.

According to a statement from the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, Mayor Marty Small Sr., 50, and Superintendent La’Quetta Small, 47, abused their daughter on multiple occasions in December and January. The statement accused Mayor Small of hitting the girl with a broom and causing her to "lose consciousness," repeatedly threatening to "earth slam" her down the stairs, grabbing the girl by her head and throwing her to the ground, and "smacking the weave out of her head."

Mrs. Small has been accused of punching her daughter in the chest, striking her with a belt, and dragging her by the hair. At the time of the alleged incidents, the girl was 15 or 16 years old.

Both Mayor and Mrs. Small have been charged with second-degree endangering the welfare of a child and at least one count of disorderly persons simple assault. Separately, Mayor Small has been charged with third-degree terroristic threats and third-degree aggravated assault, while Mrs. Small was assessed two additional counts of disorderly persons simple assault.

Ed Jacobs, Small's attorney, noted: "The charges filed today by the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office make no claims of public corruption or failure by Mayor Small to discharge his duties as mayor."

Small first entered office in October 2019 following the resignation of Democrat Mayor Frank Gilliam, who had pled guilty to wire fraud.

The criminal charges against the Smalls come after weeks of speculation following a raid on their home last month. During the raid, which lasted about three and a half hours, police reportedly seized cellphones and computers.

Within days of the raid, Mayor Small held a press conference along with his wife and two children, including the daughter he has now been accused of abusing. During the press conference, Small stated the four of them had begun "therapy" regarding "a family matter."

Mayor Small also addressed several "rumors" that he claimed had been swirling about his family. The most "egregious" of these rumors, he claimed, was that his daughter had gotten "pregnant with twins" and that he became so angry that he "beat the (expletive) out of her so bad that [he] killed the babies." People had told Small that he would be charged with "double murder" and that police ransacked his house "looking for evidence of a miscarriage," he said at the press conference.

People has reported that the investigation into the mayor and his wife began when their daughter supposedly wrote the word "abuse" on a school assignment earlier this year and asked to see a counselor. The girl was eventually referred to the principal, who reportedly passed along the allegations to the Department of Child Protection and Permanency.

On the same day that the Smalls' home was raided, officers arrested Constance "Mandy" Days-Chapman, the principal of Atlantic City High School — the only high school in the district — and charged her with misconduct and failure to report child abuse. Whether the charges relate to the case involving Small's daughter is unclear.

Mayor Small described Days-Chapman, Small's former re-election campaign manager and the former chair of Atlantic City's Democratic Committee, as a close family friend. "We support you, Mandy," the mayor said during his press conference about the raid on his home. "You did absolutely nothing wrong."

Days-Chapman did not respond to a request for comment from WPVI. The district also did not respond to the outlet's request for comment in connection to her arrest. WPVI claimed it searched for someone from the district to give a statement about Superintendent Small's arrest and her current job status but was not "able to reach anyone."
