Long Island teacher Timothy Harrison has been arrested for having sex with a 15-year-old girl

A Long Island teacher and girls’ lacrosse coach was arrested Thursday for having sex with a teenage student, police officers said.

Timothy Harrison, 46, allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old girl while working as a special education teacher and lacrosse coach at the Babylon School District in 2013, according to Suffolk County Police.

“Today’s announcement of the arrest of a Babylonian school teacher for rape is disturbing,” Suffolk Police Commissioner Rodney Harrison said at a news conference.

“The rape occurred off school premises, however the victim stated that there was inappropriate physical contact at the school,” he added.

The department was made aware of the sexual relationship by the Babylon School District in 2021 and launched an investigation.

Harrison was arrested Thursday morning during a traffic stop on the Robert Moses Causeway and charged with two counts of third-degree rape and one criminal sex act.

Timothy Harrison was arrested during a traffic stop and charged with double rape for having sex with a 15-year-old girl while working as a teacher and coach.

The alleged rapist was being held in Suffolk County’s First Precinct Thursday night and was due to be arraigned in First District Court in Central Islip on Friday.

Principal Linda Rozzi called the allegations “troubling”.

“These allegations are extremely worrying and our thoughts are with the victim,” she said Thursday.

“The District and Department of Education have no tolerance for such heinous acts and take all allegations of this nature very seriously. We will continue to make the safety and welfare of our students and staff our top priority.”

The department was notified of the sexual relationship by the Babylon School District in 2021 and launched an investigation.

Commissioner Harrison commended the victim for her bravery.

“Your courage will give other victims of similar abuse the courage to come forward,” he said.

However, a school district alumni said there were more predators for police to investigate.

“At one point they said, ‘That’s the only criminal we’ve stumbled across.'” Barbara Maier told Patch.com about the police briefing.

“Which isn’t true, because every single one of us has been a victim of a crime.”
