A Brooklyn middle school teacher has been arrested and charged with the rape of a 14-year-old student. Claudia Tillery, 42, allegedly engaged in a sexual relationship with the unidentified boy for two years. Tillery, who teaches at MS 35, The Stephen Decatur Middle School in Bedford-Stuyvesant, allegedly bribed the student, then a sixth-grader, with alcohol and marijuana.

An NYPD spokesman said the relationship was allegedly consensual, though New York law considers sex with a minor statutory rape; police add that the sexual acts didn't happen on school grounds. Tillery was arrested in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, yesterday afternoon. She was charged with rape, unlawful dealing of drugs and alcohol to a child, sexual misconduct, sexual abuse and acting in a manner injurious to a child. The boy apparently decided to end the relationship recently and tell authorities.
