A maestro teaching partner accused of sexually assaulting a nonverbal autistic tyro in a classroom filled with other students and adults will not face transgression sex-abuse charges, the Daily News has learned.
Alameldin Abdelrahim was accused of fixation the conduct of a 5-year-old kindergartner on his groin while sitting on a rocking chair and reading to the child.
The 62-year-old was allegedly held by another paraprofessional on Sept. 14 with an construction inside the classroom at Public School 200K on Benson St. in Bath Beach, Brooklyn.
A source informed with the case pronounced that even after Abdelrahim’s co-worker allegedly saw his erection, he was not immediately private from the classroom and was allowed to take the students to lunch.
The next day, Abdelrahim was arrested and charged with first-degree passionate abuse and other charges.
He was immediately fired from the Department of Education.
If Abdelrahim has been convicted of the top transgression charge, it could have landed him in upstate jail for up to 7 years.
At Abdelrahim’s rapist justice arraignment, his attorney, Robert Riether, pronounced “the watcher was mistaken.”
On Wednesday, prosecutors mutated the allegations against Abdelrahim and forsaken the sex crime charges.
According to the new rapist complaint, the former 18-year teacher was in a rocking chair reading to the tyro when he allegedly placed his palm on the child’s shoulders.

When Abdelrahim private his palm from the child’s shoulder, his co-worker allegedly saw an construction in his pants, according to the complaint.
“The charges were reduced currently to endangering the gratification of a child and attempted endangering the gratification of a child. The transgression can’t be proven over a reasonable doubt,” pronounced a mouthpiece with the Brooklyn district attorney’s office.
Abdelrahim, who posted $60,000 bail, faces up to a year if convicted for the misconduct charges.
His new attorney, Jay Schwitzman, declined to criticism on the ongoing investigation.
Despite the reduced charges, Abdelrahim’s practice standing with the DOE is still terminated, a source said.
