    Lawrence Scott, 40, detective for New York City Department of Education, New York City, New York, allegedly "tried to have sex with a Brooklyn teacher he was probing in exchange for letting her keep her job"

    New York Post: Teacher: Prober said sex would get me off hook (Dec 29 2013)

    Investigator Lawrence Scott, 40, allegedly sent scores of X-rated texts, a photo of his penis and explicit demands for sex to Natalya Sokolson Gordon, a computer and fifth-grade teacher at PS 329 in Coney Island. “I like it dirty,” Scott texted the tall brunette soon after inviting her to call him when she got “the courage.” Over 2¹/₂ months, he sent Gordon a barrage of pornographic messages and requests. Gordon, 44, admits she sexted back — even sending him topless and bottomless photos of herself, which he requested. She claims it was a desperate bid to save her career from what she called false accusations. “I feel so stupid for believing he would help me,” she told The Post, tears streaming down her face. “I was scared I was going to lose my job. I felt I had no choice. He had my life in his hands.”


    Gordon also has filed complaints that Scott groped her breasts and put his hand between her legs during a discussion of her case in a closed-door meeting at her school. Scott denied assaulting Gordon. She secretly taped the meeting, which includes slapping sounds — she says she fought him off.

    Gothamist: Brooklyn Teacher Claims School Investigator Blackmailed Her Into Sexting Him (Dec 29 2013)

    The married [Lawrence] Scott sent [Natalya Sokolson] Gordon tons of sexts, including ones about sex positions (“Some may force u to scream"), married life (“We can just enjoy each other’s company . . . A lot if we’re naked lmao.”) and explicit dick pics. Gordon admits she sexted back, and even sent him topless and bottomless photos of herself when he asked for them, but she claims it was all under pressure. Scott resigned his position in October after being confronted with the texts (275 pages of texts), but claims it was always consensual: “It was the dumbest mistake I ever made,” Scott told the Post. “She initiated it. I never forced anything on her. There was no quid pro quo.” Gordon has claimed Scott also groped her breasts and put his hand between her legs during an official meeting.

    Ed Notes Online: Who's to Blame? Round up on Lawrence Scott and Natalya Sokolson Gordon [Blog] (Dec 29 2013)

    Let's see now. An investigator for OSI so abuses his position by trying to extort sexual favors from a teacher under the threat of a losing her job and the most that happens to him is that he is forced to resign? Shouldn't he be doing a perp walk? ... And South Bronx (NYC DOE Investigator Lawrence Scott Texts Privates to Teacher He Is Investigating for Corporal Punishment) points to Betsy Combier's quote in the Post article, "they are still making the victim a culprit" because Ms Gordon did not "report him and that she texted back."
