Was a Brooklyn Teacher Having Lesbian Sex or Merely Naked on the Floor of a Classroom?


Alini Brito, a 30-year-old teacher, is suing the city to get her job back after she was fired for allegedly having sex with Cindy Mauro in a classroom at James Madison High School. Brito says she was just getting candy from her friend. The witness of the alleged affair is a custodian, who “witnessed” the relations “while standing 15 feet behind a 300-pound janitor who’d opened the classroom door a crack,” according to Brito’s lawyer. But the same lawyer admits there was a naked body on the floor. Like you’ve never seen a naked body on the floor of a high school classroom!

There was supposedly a security tape from the outside hallway, since destroyed, which did not show the witnesses peering through the door:

The tape also didn’t show the school safety agent who testified that he’d seen Brito “naked on the floor with her legs kneeled, like in a birthing position, and I saw the blonde between her legs.”

“When I opened the door, she looked up and told me to shut the door, shut the door,” the agent added.

Brito says it was just a problem with blood sugar:

“Upon immediately entering the classroom, Brito’s knees buckled, at which point Brito laid down off to the right but at the foot of the classroom door. Mauro assisted Brito by placing Brito’s sweater under her head and elevated her legs in a chair. Mauro also obtained a couple of suger packets from her desk and gave them to Brito,” the petition says.

In the Post‘s report, it’s not clear whether Brito does indeed admit to being naked or if she considers the entire story a big conspiracy against her.

Either way, hearing officer Mary Crangle is having none of it, noting that “[t]here is no possible medical, nonsexual assistance that a partially naked person could possibly be rendering to another naked person in the position described.” Clearly she’s never had a blood sugar emergency at a Brooklyn high school…
