Queens gym teacher arrested for molesting 16-year-old female student
A gym teacher at a Queens high school has been arrested for getting physical with a 16-year-old female student, cops said Friday.
NYPD Special Victims detectives arrested Bryan Costillo, 34, on Thursday — about a month after he resigned from The Business Technology Early College High School on Hillside Ave. in Jamaica, where he allegedly molested the teen, officials said.
Costillo called the student into his office on Dec. 16, asked the teen to turn around, then reached around her ribs and touched her breasts over her clothes, according to police.
When he asked the stunned teen if any other man had touched her that way she pulled his hands off her body and asked if his actions were “really necessary,” police sources said.

9 out of 10 of the perpetrators are never brought to justice and never appear on sex offender registries.
They are protected by New York State laws.
