Police: Sussex Tech teacher sexted student
Delaware State Police arrested a Sussex Tech teacher Feb. 20 after they say he had been sending sexually charged text messages to a student for almost a year.
Stanley Daniel Zakrociemski, 36, of Millsboro began sending a 17-year-old student text messages of a sexual nature in March 2012, said Cpl. Gary Fournier of the Delaware State Police. A Sussex Tech press release said he was a Student Youth Activities Coordinator.
A school employee recently discovered the texts and contacted school administrators, Fournier said.
"You are amazingly hot ... sexy ... beautiful ... I'm so crazy in love with you!!!! Please come over!!!!!!" one of the messages read, in part.
Fournier said the relationship between Zakrociemski and the student, who turned 18 in December, was never physical.
Zakrociemski was charged with five counts of sexual solicitation of a child under 18. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $100,000 secured bond.
According to Office of Management and Budget records, Zakrociemski started work at Sussex Tech at the beginning of the 2011-12 school year, six months before the texts to the student began. His salary is $55,841.
Carolyn O'Neal, spokeswoman for Sussex Tech, said he is suspended with pay at this time, pending the completion of the investigation.
